East Wing Exodus Continues as Another Harris Staffer Steps Aside

Linkedin Share

Over the course of the last several months, key figures continue to fall away from the Biden administration, leading many to wonder if the President’s poor approval rating is forcing some to get out while their resumés are still somewhat intact.

Much of this trouble appears to be emanating from the East Wing, and the reportedly hostile work environment for those assisting Vice President Kamala Harris.  Veep is said to be a bit of a bully, and the number of high level staffers jumping ship seems to potentially corroborate this.

The latest to leave the VP’s side could be one of the most important yet.

Vice President Kamala Harris continues to lose staff with the departure of yet another high-ranking member of her team.

Kate Childs Graham, Harris’ chief speechwriter, is leaving the vice president’s office at the end of the month, sources told Fox News.

A White House official told Fox News, “Kate is leaving the office, but not the family. The vice president is grateful for her service to the administration.”

“We are excited for her next step,” the official added.

Graham’s departure is the latest in a rather significant list.

Harris’ communications director Ashley Etienne resigned in November to “pursue other opportunities.” That came after reports of exasperation between Harris’ office and Biden’s amid lagging approval ratings for Harris.

Shortly after Etienne’s departure, Symone Sanders announced she would be departing at the end of the year. Harris’ office said Sanders, a senior adviser and her chief spokesperson, “will be missed.”

In January, Vincent Evans, who served as the vice president’s deputy director of public engagement and intergovernmental affairs for nearly a year, left to become the executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus.

Given the ongoing crises faces the American people, and the potential for a catastrophic conflict in Eastern Europe looming over the horizon, these departures are all the more significant.
