VP Harris loses speechwriter after she served only 4 months on the job

Working for Vice President Kamala Harris, as the country has learned over the past year and a half, probably isn’t the wisest choice.

According to Politico, continuing a wave of exits from the veep’s section of the White House, a speechwriter called Meghan Groob has decided to leave — after only four months on the job. It would appear that the situation inside Harris’ office, which was described last year as “toxic,” isn’t much better these days. 

Politico noted: “Groob was hired in April after Harris’ first chief speechwriter, Kate Childs Graham, left at the end of February. She had previously worked as a speechwriter for Bill Gates and as an editorial director at Gates Ventures.”

It’s unclear which speeches Groob might have written or contributed to for the vice president over her four-month tenure, but Harris isn’t exactly known for her impactful speeches, as many on social media pointed out.

If that wasn’t bad enough, the news came at the same time that Rohini Kosoglu, Harris’ longest-serving aid, announced that she, too, will be leaving the vice president’s office next month.

“She has brought vision, strategic judgment, and a depth of experience as our Administration has addressed some of the most urgent challenges facing our nation. She is an exceptional public servant and I am enormously grateful for her service. Rohini will remain a valued advisor and friend,” a statement from Harris read.

At this rate, the vice president will have to use the likes of a temporary staffing agency just to keep a number of critical roles filled if the exodus continues.
