Vice President Kamala Harris has seen yet another indication that her staff the happiest and healthy group on Capitol Hill as news breaks that yet another of her staff is leaving animists reports of dysfunction on the team.
According to The New York Post, the VP’s deputy director of public engagement and intergovernmental affairs, Vincent Evans, announced on Wednesday that he would be taking his leave.
CNBC reported that the former Harris staffer said he was leaving to join the Congressional Black Caucus, which is chaired by Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio) and has the mission of advocating for minorities.
Harris might have the second most important title in all the land, but it’s a safe assumption that she doesn’t have the second-best staff in all the territories.
The Biden/Harris administration has been riddled with reports of their teams, specifically Harris’ team, being treated unfairly in one way or another, including a report last month that described her as a “bully” who dishes out “soul-destroying criticism.”
While that might be the case for some, Evans is insisting that he is still on good terms with Harris, telling CNBC that the resignation isn’t linked to any of that previous nastiness:
“I am deeply honored to be named the executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus,” Evans said in a statement to the network.
“I started my career in Washington working for a member of the CBC, so I know firsthand the tremendous leadership and impact this caucus has in Congress and across the country.”
According to the post, Harris’ chief spokesperson and longtime aide, Symone Sanders took her exit last month along with communications director Ashley Etienne and the director of press operations Peter Velz has also resigned.
