‘Not a healthy environment’: Kamala Harris’ office rife with dissent
https://www.politico.com/news/2021/06/30/kamala-harris-office-dissent-497290

Quote
When Vice President Kamala Harris finally made the decision to visit the Mexico border last week, people inside her own office were blindsided by the news.

For days, aides and outside allies had been calling and texting with each other about the political fallout that a potential trip would entail. But when it became known that she was going to El Paso, it left many scrambling, including officials who were responsible for making travel arrangements and others outside the VP’s office charged with crafting the messaging across the administration.

The handling of the border visit was the latest chaotic moment for a staff that’s quickly become mired in them. Harris’ team is experiencing low morale, porous lines of communication and diminished trust among aides and senior officials. Much of the frustration internally is directed at Tina Flournoy, Harris’ chief of staff, a veteran of Democratic politics who began working for her earlier this year.

In interviews, 22 current and former vice presidential aides, administration officials and associates of Harris and Biden described a tense and at times dour office atmosphere. Aides and allies said Flournoy, in an apparent effort to protect Harris, has instead created an insular environment where ideas are ignored or met with harsh dismissals and decisions are dragged out. Often, they said, she refuses to take responsibility for delicate issues and blames staffers for the negative results that ensue.

Kamala Harris' office is tense and filled with dissent.

They're catching it early this time... some key-Dems and their media-allies.

They missed it with Hillary in '92, coming-in and firing the entire White House travel-office.  A lib female-attorney inflicting scornful revenge for being kicked-off the Watergate Investigative team for leaking.

And here we are, in 2021.  Hillary's raging mean-spiritedness, incorporated by just about every female Democrat-politician you can name.

I'd complain about anonymous sources, but it was good for the gander for four years, so it must be good for the goose too, right?

I think the "leaking" is intentional and far beyond some disaffected staffers. Jill Biden absolutely hates Kamala-toe and is pushing to get rid of her in any way possible. Death by 1,000 cuts.

'Consistent thread': Harris staff complaints predate her vice presidency
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/kamala-harris-staff-complaints

Former aides to Vice President Kamala Harris charge that she terrorized them in a hostile work environment, continuing a pattern that dates back to her time as San Fransico district attorney.

The criticisms of Harris's management did not stop her rise from prosecutor to California attorney general to U.S. senator from the nation's most populous state to presidential candidate all the way up through the vice presidency.

Two senior advance staffers in her vice presidential office recently announced their departures, in a manner some former employees say is familiar to them.

“Look, this is a bottom-line business,” one senior Democratic operative told the Washington Examiner after the recent allegations broke. “And the bottom line is the vice president has challenges with staff wherever she is.”

A tense environment with many left crying.

Quote
“Nothing in the news now will matter in 2024. If these reports are well founded, Harris has lots of time to fix them, and other more significant things will happen before then,” Greenberg said, calling the allegations “pure inside baseball.”

According to Business Insider, however, these issues have been cropping up for years.

Barbara O’Connor, a communications professor at California State University, Sacramento, told the outlet that at least 20 interns who had worked in Harris’s attorney general and Senate offices sought her advice in tears. O’Connor said that she helped several of them transfer out of Harris’s offices at the time.

There have also been high-dollar settlements linked to the veep's former staff.

In 2011, a settlement was reached between the California Justice Department and a top aide to then-Attorney General Harris. Upon leaving, Terri Carbaugh, chief deputy attorney general, signed a nondisclosure agreement and received a $34,900 settlement, an amount just below the $35,000 limit that would have necessitated approval by the state Department of Finance.

Now she's missing...

From the time-period when she supposedly had a Sunday 'check-up' at Walter Reed...

The obvious conclusion is that she tested positive for Wuhan after coming in-contact with the Texas-fleebaggers.  -Can't have the optics of an ineffective vaccine leaking-out.

If she was ever truly vaccinated.  How do we know that wasn't simply water?  I'm not much into CT's, but the stuff they're doing trying to 'sell' a vaccine that is supposed to save us all from death, or even WORSE, with a 2% mortality rate ... it just isn't passing my sniff test, yet.

Kamala Harris' office is tense and filled with dissent.

If she was younger she could improve the mood by doing what got her into office: sleep with all the guys.  Now a bj might suffice.

Well, she sucked and ****ed her way to the near-top of the Commiefornia political system, a place where it's a one-party hellhole.

Little wonder that her "bedside manner" isn't so warm 'n fuzzy -- except, of course, for those who can deliver what she wants. Everyone else is just there to make her look good -- which ain't workin' too well at the moment.

There's a REASON she caved so early in the 2020 presidential race. Even the Dems can't stand her ass.
