The Harris campaign is sinking, and now, Kamala’s own staffers are turning against her.
Former Campaign State Operations Director Kelly Mehlenbacher charged Harris with the deplorable treatment of her campaign staffers, mostly based on recent layoffs of staff members, according to The Hill.
The truth comes out…
Harris likes to paint herself as a woman of the people, but by now, most have been able to see through this charade. Confirmation of the real Harris was evident in Mehlenbacher’s resignation letter.
“This is my third presidential campaign and I have never seen an organization treat its staff so poorly,” Mehlenbacher wrote.
She went on: “While I still believe that Senator Harris is the strongest candidate to win in the General Election in 2020, I no longer have confidence in our campaign or its leadership… The treatment of our staff over the last two weeks was the final straw in this very difficult decision.”
According to Mehlenbacher, Harris’ dictate for staffers to move from Washington, D.C. to Baltimore, only to lay them off “without thoughtful consideration of the personal consequences to them or the consequences that their absence would have on the remaining staff.”
Not only were they let go, but there were given no notice that things were going south. Additionally, many of these people were apparently only hired several weeks ago, and now they are without employment.
No plan to win
The letter paints a picture of a completely unorganized campaign, and this is not the first time this type of report has surfaced about the Harris campaign.
There remains a lot of finger-pointing going on, with many calling for campaign director Juan Rodriguez to resign. That may not actually be the case, though, as insiders have called Rodriguez a man with no power.
While his title puts him atop the power structure, many believe it is Kamala Harris’ sister that actually has the final approval for all decisions.
This has caused a significant delay in moving things forward and some believe that indecision has cost them dearly at times.
For her part, Kamala Harris has not addressed the issue publicly, which is only hurting her image even more. If she is so hesitant to recognize and address problems in her own campaign, how can she be trusted to run the country?
