Kamala Harris hosted a party for her team at the Naval Observatory after claiming that the vice president’s staff were treated as “s**t”
Kamala Harris hosted a party for her team at her Naval Observatory home, after her staff anonymously claimed that they were “treated as sexual harassment.”
A source said: “People are thrown under the bus from the highest point. The fuse is short. This is an abusive environment.”
“This is not a healthy environment and people often feel abused. This is not a place where people feel supported, but a place where people feel abused.”
Harris and the first gentleman, Doug Emhoff, hosted a party at their official residence near the Naval Observatory in Washington.
The event took place in the week after July 4 and was themed around the United States, including red checkered tablecloths, burgers and barbecues.
Simon Sanders, Harris’ senior consultant, wrote on Twitter after the event: “Let me tell you about these burgers at the vice president’s residence! The food is good, and the people are great.”
Sanders defended Harris in an anonymous article, branding employees who criticized her for “cowards.”
“We are not making rainbows and rabbits all day long. Whoever wants to propose should directly raise it,” she said.
“Vice President Harris focuses on work, not chattering in front of the drinking fountain.”
An anonymous friend of Harris complained after contacting her chief of staff, Tina Flournoy, on behalf of a senior Democratic donor, and did not receive a response for several weeks.
“This person raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for your boss-even millions of dollars-and you are just bragging about them?” the friend said.
“Next time Camara wants [them] For some things, it’s like,’Hey, I can’t even get a call back from your chief of staff! ‘”
Some staff members stood behind Harris, calling her “the most insightful person on the planet.”
“She may not have first-hand knowledge, but it is hard to imagine that she knows nothing about what is happening.”
Last week, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki also ignored troublesome stories in the vice president’s office.
“What I want to say is that the vice president is a very important partner. America president,” Psaki said.
“She has a challenging job, a hard job, and there are people around her who are very supportive of her.
“But other than that, I will not comment further on these reports.”
