Another one of Vice President Kamala Harris’ key staffers has now resigned from the VP office.
Nancy McEldowney, Harris’ national security adviser is now the latest in recent months to resign from the Vice President’s office. McEldowney worked for Harris ever since she took office.
She released a memo explaining her resignation, writing:
“This was a difficult decision because I am so deeply committed to the work we do and the crucial national interest we serve,” she wrote. “But after more than a year, this is the right decision for my family.” She added.
McEldowney is a well-known person in the executive branch. She has previously served in various Democrat administrations as the former ambassador to Bulgaria, the Director of State Department’s Foreign Service Institute, adviser to President Biden and VP Harris, among other high ranking positions.
She has now become the 10th key official to leave office since June. Recently, other key officials like the director of digital strategies Rajun Kaur, director of the advance Karly Satkowiak, deputy director of advance Gabrielle DeFranceschi, communications director Ashley Etienne, chief spokesperson Symone Sanders, director of press operations Peter Velz, deputy director of public engagement Vince Evans, speechwriting director Kate Childs Graham and deputy press secretary Sabrina Singh had also stepped down and some accused the ‘hostile work environment’ at the office for their decision to step down.
Multiple reports had circulated recently about “bullying” and complaints of Harris’ “poor treatment of her staff”
