Rumors about the fatal way of managing the team by Kamila Harris appeared in July this year. Her colleagues said working alongside the first female vice president in US history was “frustrating” and “dysfunctional.”
Then Symone Sanders, her spokeswoman at the time, took up the defense of Harris. She called all those who anonymously made accusations “cowards”. However, she admitted that working alongside Biden’s deputy is difficult. – When I hear from people that they have hard work, my reaction is short: Welcome to the club – she said in one of the interviews.
Five months later, Sanders herself resigned from working with Kamila Harris for the official reason for her decision, stating personal reasons and a desire to rest after three exhausting years of work. Along with her, three more people from the politicians’ milieu made their statement.
One of the eighteen people who left Kamala Harris in recent years and who the authors of the text have reached is Gil Duran. He is a former Democrat strategist who worked with the current vice president for five months in 2013. In his opinion, the politician has been repeating “the same destructive patterns” for years. – Who are the next talented people you are going to bring and destroy and then pretend they are leaving for positive reasons? – he asked in The Washington Post.
Other associates complained that the 57-year-old politician harassed them for not being prepared, even though they provided her with the relevant materials. – In the case of Kamala, you have to endure a constant amount of soul-destroying criticism, as well as her own insecurity. So you keep supporting the tyrant and it’s not entirely clear why – said one of her former subordinates.
Kamila Harris’s defenders claim that the criticism that fell on her is the result of racism and sexism. According to them, the vice president has to deal with double standards, as does any woman who “is ambitious, strong or just not afraid to appear strong in public.”
– People take a lot of things personally. But I never felt like Kamala treated me unfairly, and we have a long history of working together. Will he point out incompetence? Yes. Does this make someone uncomfortable? Yes. But if she were a man with that management style, she would have her TV show, says Sean Clegg, former advisor to the first woman as US vice president.
