According to a new report from Business Insider several former staffers to the Vice President echoed reporting about her office being dysfunctional.
Many ex-staffers told Insider that Harris’ previous offices were toxic and unpredictable.
In addition, one person forwarded a report to their therapist, with a note that read: “Rarely in life are we publicly vindicated.”
Per Business Insider:
Several former staffers to Vice President Kamala Harris were not surprised to read reports that her office environment is being called unhealthy and dysfunctional, according to an Insider report published Wednesday.
A bombshell Politico report last month that described a tense workplace at the VP’s White House operation spread “like wildfire” among former aides to Harris, many of whom “recognized themselves” in the story, an ex-staffer told Insider.
“WOW,” a former Harris staffer wrote in response to a text about the article. “That is quite a story. Thank you for flagging.”
One former Harris staffer forwarded the Politico report to their therapist, with a note that read: “Rarely in life are we publicly vindicated.”
That former staffer said they had been seeking therapy once they learned President Joe Biden picked Harris as his running mate to “resolve trauma from the on-the-job abuse” endured when they worked for Harris.
Insider’s Robin Bravender spoke with 12 former Harris staffers about the office culture when Harris was San Francisco’s district attorney, California’s attorney general, and a US senator.
Several ex-staffers described Harris as unpredictable and said that she had a habit of hanging up the phone on her staff. One told Insider that the attorney general’s workplace was “toxic” and “reactionary.”
