Harris’ domestic policy adviser Rohini Kosoglu announced she would be leaving the office in August, and director of speechwriting Meghan Groob is also reported to be leaving after serving in her role for just four months, Politico reported. Groob had taken over for Kate Childs Graham, who announced her departure in February.
And these weren’t transient Harris helpers, either.
Kosoglu’s work under Harris dates back nearly six years ago to her time in the Senate. She would serve on Harris’ presidential campaign followed by a job on the transition team before moving to the vice president’s office. Kosoglu said she is resigning so she can spend more time with her family.
Insiders within the Harris administration have complained about the Vice President’s leadership style, claiming that her immediate orbit is a bit of a hostile work environment.
