Another key staff member for Vice President Kamala Harris is leaving, this time just four months after working in the White House.
Meghan Groob, the vice president’s director of speechwriting, is leaving, according to a new report.

“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,” Politico reported.
“Her departure comes amid a continuing staff makeover for the vice president’s office. The vice president’s office has already seen a reset of large parts of the communications team. And on Friday, the Washington Post reported that Harris’ longest service aide, Rohini Kosoglu, is also leaving the office,” it added.

Harris has certainly made life difficult for her speechwriter in recent weeks.
“First of all, if you are a parent of sons, do think about what this means for the life of your son and what that will mean in terms of the choices he will have,” Harris said in response to a CNN question last month.
The remarks are one of many recent challenging videos for the vice president during Groob’s short time in her role.

In addition to Groob’s departure, Harris has also lost more than a dozen staff in less than two years.
The high turnover has also included rumors and reports of the vice president’s office as a toxic work environment.
The speechwriter’s departure likely won’t help make the situation any easier for Harris as she seeks to help her party ahead of November’s midterm elections.
