Kamala Harris' staffers leaving White House in part because they fear being labeled 'Harris person': 報告する

A growing list of Harris staffers are heading out the door amid internal chaos and disastrous poll numbers.

ラベル付けの懸念 “ハリス人,” 燃え尽き症候群とより環境に優しい牧草地への欲求, are driving the exodus from the vice president’s office, sources familiar with the chaos in the VP’s office told Axios.

A different Democratic operative close to the veep’s office told Axios that the staff departures are lighting a fire under chief of staff Tina Flournoy to keep the sinking ship afloat.

If we mess this up, it’s going to set women back when it comes to running for higher office for years to come,” the operative said.

The label of being a “ハリス人” apparently carries a weighted stigma with it in Washington — something that does not bode well for the fledgling veep as her first year in office begins to wrap up.

While turnover in a political office is natural, the early departure of key staffers can send signals of struggle to those outside the office walls.

People close to the vice president’s office told Axios that the departures are normal and come from the veep team’s exhaustion after the Biden campaign and transition.

さらに, those close to Harris’ operation said that some of the departures are being driven by eyes wandering to greener financial pastures.

The turnover might be due to the chaos interwoven throughout Harris’ operation that has seen the vice president laugh off questions about the border and produce a space-themed video using child actors, among other controversies.

Harris’ poll numbers also paint a grim picture for the veep, with her cratering approval rating tailing バイデン大統領の own and showing how the country’s second in command is viewed by the populace.

ザ・ “ハリス人” label also spells trouble for the vice president’s future political aspirations — her name is already being floated a potential replacement for Biden should he choose not to run again in 2024.

The report comes amid the news that Harris’ chief spokesperson, シモーンサンダース, is departing the office at the end of the year.
