Another Kamala Harris aide has resigned amid rumors of turmoil in the Biden-Harris Administration just weeks after four Harris staffers announced they were leaving.
Vincent Evans will leave Harris’ office to become the executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus.
“I am deeply honored to be named the executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus,” Evans said in the statement. “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.”
Another key aide is leaving Vice President Kamala Harris’ office following the departure of two other advisors.
Vincent Evans, Harris’ deputy director of public engagement and intergovernmental affairs, has taken a top job at the Congressional Black Caucus, he said in a statement provided to CNBC.
The CBC is led by Black lawmakers who advocate for issues important to minority communities across the country. The group is chaired by Rep. Joyce Beatty, D-Ohio.
Evans was a political director for Harris during the transition, and held the same post while she was a nominee for vice president during the later stages of the run-up to the 2020 election, according to his LinkedIn profile.
A person familiar with Evans’ departure says he is leaving on great terms with the vice president, and that he plans to maintain his close relationship with her. The move, this person added, has nothing to do with the other recent departures. Harris, according to this person, supports Evans’ decision. The person declined to be named in order to speak freely about the job change.
Kamala Harris is a ‘bully’ according to former staffers who had to endure her abuse.
“It’s clear that you’re not working with somebody who is willing to do the prep and the work,” one former staffer told the Washington Post. “With Kamala you have to put up with a constant amount of soul-destroying criticism and also her own lack of confidence. So you’re constantly sort of propping up a bully and it’s not really clear why.”
Last month it was reported Symone Sanders, a senior advisor and chief spokesperson to Kamala Harris, was leaving the White House at the end of December.
Kamala Harris’ Communications Director Ashley Etienne also left the administration in December to pursue “other opportunities.”
Joe Biden’s Communications Chief resigned just one day after Kamala Harris’ Comms Director announced she is leaving the administration.
