(FeaturedNews.com) – Reuters obtained an internal staff memo on April 4 from Vice President Kamala Harris’ office announcing that Deputy Chief of Staff Michael Fuchs is leaving. He will stay until May and announce his future plans later. Fuchs’ job was to advise the vice president, accompany her on trips, and manage staff members.

According to Reuters, Fuchs noted the many challenges the administration has had to contend with since taking office. He gave the administration credit for turning things around. Communications director Jamal Simmons thanked Fuchs for his contributions to the Harris team and said they would miss him.
The deputy chief of staff is just one of the many staffers to leave Harris’ office over the past year. The vice president also recently had to say goodbye to her national security adviser, Nancy McEldowney, who announced her departure on March 21.
Fuchs and McEldowney joined Sabrina Singh, who had been deputy press secretary; Symone Sanders, previously the chief spokesperson; Vincent Evans, deputy director of public engagement and intergovernmental affairs; Peter Velz, director of press operations; and Kate Childs Graham, director of speechwriting, all who have vacated the team since the Biden administration took office.
When Sanders left, she said the stress and pressure of the high-profile job led her to move on, but there have been rumors of a toxic work environment, with some people calling Harris difficult. Bottom line, why can’t the vice president keep staffers, and what does this say about her ability to lead?
