Kamala Harris Left Speechless as Another Staffer Jumps Ship
Speechwriting' team leader takes exit
Vice President Kamala Harris' speechwriting' team leader, Kate Childs Graham has announced she will be joining a slew of other former colleagues jumping ship.
The deputy communications director to Harris, Herbie Ziskend, paid tribute to his departing colleague and announced the loss on social media:
“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.”

The departure follows a string of farewell messages as staffers leave the employ of the vice president.
But it's not just staff leaving, those who remain to complain of problems and endure constant backstabbing, chaos, and dissatisfaction.
The news comes just a day after Harris’s deputy director of public engagement and intergovernmental affairs, Vincent Evans, announced he is departing the VP's office.
As Neon Nettle reported:
Evans "has taken a job at the Congressional Black Caucus," he reportedly said in a statement provided to CNBC.
Chaired by Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-OH), the CBC is led by black lawmakers who advocate for issues important to minority communities across the country.
Multiple sources about the feud consuming Harris’s office that has spilled out over to the wider Biden administration.
As Brietbart reported:
The infighting has resulted in four staffers heading for the exits before the new year.
The lack of office organization has left staffers angry about being “treated like shit” in a work environment of “abuse."
Aides have also shown their anxiety over “white man” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s potential 2024 presidential bid, calling it “disrespectful” to Harris. Buttigieg, however, has publicly downplayed his ambitions.
“It’s obvious things aren’t in a great place, so I understand the urge to sub in a new team, but that misdiagnoses the problem,” another insider told the Hill of Harris’s office.
“The problem is there has never been a coherent strategy. It has always been an operation that lurches from one chaotic moment to the next.”
