Kamala Harris Loses Yet Another White House Staffer, Eighth Aid To Resign In Months
The mass exodus of staffers leaving Vice President Kamala Harris' cabinet continues to flow.
Kate Childs Graham, who was Harris' director of speechwriting for the past year, has given her notice and will leave the VPs office by the end of the month — becoming the eighth person to leave the Vice President's staff.
Herbie Ziskend, deputy communications director to the Vice President, had kind parting words for his former colleague.
"Kate is committed, hard-working, hilarious – a great colleague and friend," he said. "I'll miss working with her every day, but excited for her next adventure."
There are reports that a massive reset in the vice president's office was coming, possibly due to low poll ratings and the Biden administration trying to punch up their public image of both Biden and Harris.
Most of those who had left Harris' staff occupied public facing roles in the press office, but several staffers both former and present have spoken out and alleged that the Vice President acts like a bully and constantly hands out harsh criticisms to those at every level of her staff.

Harris staffers have been jumping ship pretty much since her very public and highly criticized trip to Central America all the way back in June. In her infamous speech, she told those in Central America — "Do not come."
The trip and speech were supposed to help tackle the migration of those there. What happened almost immediately after was the take off of this train of resignations that are still chugging along.
The vice president's director of advance Karly Satkowiak and deputy director of advance Gabrielle DeFranceschi who planned the trip are both gone.
Rajan Kaur — who was Harris' director of digital strategies — gone. Communications director Ashley Etienne also stepped down from her role.
