(Big League Politics) – No less than 19 present and former staffers and personnel associated with Vice President Kamala Harris have spoken negatively of Harris, according to reporting of the Washington Post published last week.
Accounts of Harris staffers have pointed to laziness and callousness on her part, as well as a willingness to behave in an abusive manner towards staff. “It’s clear that you’re not working with somebody who is willing to do the prep and the work,” one former staffer said. “With Kamala you have to put up with a constant amount of soul-destroying criticism and also her own lack of confidence So you’re constantly sort of propping up a bully and it’s not really clear why.”
Harris efforts to spearhead Biden administration efforts on the border and international relations haven’t materialized, with the Vice President declining to visit the border as the administration sets the record for the most illegal border crossers in any year of American history.
Harris staffers indicated the Vice President refuses to read briefing materials necessary for national security meetings, and then proceeds to blame staffers and briefers for presenting information that she’s unable to understand.
Establishment media has presented Harris as a potential political successor to Biden, along with the equally charisma-lacking Pete Buttigieg, hoping to gently push the aging and nearly 80-year old Biden out of the political picture. Harris’ personal reputation could prove damaging to her presidential prospects, with Democrat insiders less likely to boost someone with poor character who is personally unappealing.
Accounts from Harris employees indicate she’s routinely struggled to maintain top-level political staff on account of her toxic personality. Harris has been dogged by frequent staff departures since entering the vice presidency, with longtime Biden campaign staffer Symone Sanders announcing her departure over the weekend.
