The Washington Examiner reports that Vice President Kamala Harris is “hemorrhaging staff.”
The report comes after two more members of Harris’s staff have decided to move on.
This is in addition to the countless others who have already left Harris’ office over the past two years, including her chief of staff, her deputy press secretary, her communications director, and several others.
Harris loses long-time aide
One of the aides who has decided to call it quits is Rohini Kosoglu, Harris’s domestic policy adviser. This is significant for several reasons, including that Kosoglu is one of Harris’s longest-serving aides.
Kosoglu has been with Harris since 2017 when Harris was a U.S. senator from California. But, now, Kosoglu is scheduled to leave Harris’s office next month.
According to Kosoglu, she is leaving in order to spend more time with her family.
“It’s been six years, and she [Harris] understands that my family’s very much looking forward to this time, and that I will always be here should she need any trusted information or counsel,” Kosoglu said.
Harris released her own statement on Kosoglu’s departure, saying:
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.
Harris other loss
In addition to Kosoglu, Meghan Groob, Harris’s speechwriter, is also moving on.
Groob is leaving Harris after only being on the job for less than four months. Groob took over in April for Kate Childs Graham, Harris’s first chief speechwriter, who at the time departed.
It is not known why Groob is leaving. No statement has been provided by either Groob or Harris. Perhaps Harris has not been satisfied with the quality of her speeches?
There have, however, been multiple reports of dysfunction in Harris’s office. Many have suggested that this dysfunction is the real reason why we have seen and continue to see such a high turnover rate in Harris’s office. Whatever the case may be, it’s not a good look for the vice president.
