Vice President Kamala Harris has seen yet another sign that her team isn’t the happiest and healthiest on Capitol Hill, as news surfaces that another member of her team is leaving animists claims of team instability.
Vincent Evans, the VP’s deputy director of public engagement and intergovernmental affairs, announced his departure on Wednesday, according to The New York Post.
According to CNBC the former Harris aide announced his departure to join the Congressional Black Caucus, which is chaired by Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio) and is dedicated to minority advocacy.
Harris may have the second-most important title in the country, but it’s safe to assume she doesn’t have the second-best staff in the country.
There have been numerous stories of their teams, particularly Harris’ team, being treated unfairly in some way during the Biden/Harris administration, including a report last month that branded her as a “bully” who delivers “soul-destroying criticism.”
While this may be true for some, Evans insists that he and Harris are still on good terms, telling CNBC that the departure has nothing to do with the previous squabbles:
Evans stated in a statement to the network, “I am very delighted to be named the executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus.”
“I started my career in Washington working for a member of the CBC, so I know firsthand the tremendous leadership and impact this caucus has in Congress and across the country.”
According to the article, Symone Sanders, Harris’ chief spokesperson and longtime aide, quit last month, along with communications director Ashley Etienne and director of press operations Peter Velz.
