A new report has revealed many staff members who work for Vice President Kamala Harris describe they serve in a toxic work environment and feel “treated like s***.”
“People are thrown under the bus from the very top, there are short fuses and it’s an abusive environment,” one person claimed.
“It’s not a healthy environment and people often feel mistreated,” another staffer added. “It’s not a place where people feel supported but a place where people feel treated like s***.”
Harris’ spokesperson Symone Sanders spoke against the report. ““We are not making rainbows and bunnies all day. What I hear is that people have hard jobs and I’m like ‘welcome to the club.'”
She added, ““Vice President Harris is focused on the work, not the chatter at the water cooler.”
Much of the criticism also focused on chief of staff TIna Flourney. The White House leader also served in the White House during Bill Clinton’s presidency.
The new report adds to growing criticisms against the vice president. In addition to claims of a toxic work environment, Harris faces attacks over her response to immigration, among other issues.
