Kamala Harris Staffer Blasts Floundering Campaign in Resignation Letter

The establishment Democrat’s campaign has become a whopping failure.

Published

A staffer for Democratic Senator Kamala Harris’ presidential campaign has blasted her strategy and organization in a scathing resignation letter, calling out campaign leadership for abuse of staff and bungling the California Senator’s campaign.

Kelly Mehlenbacher, a state operations manager, resigned from the campaign earlier this month, and her letter blasting the campaign’s strategy surfaced on Friday.

Mehlenbacher said that she had “never seen an organisation treat its staff so poorly … 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.

The bulk of campaign staff had apparently been moved from Washington, D.C, to Baltimore, Maryland.

Disillusioned campaign workers such as Mehlenbacher have taken objection to senior leadership. Harris’ sister Maya has apparently exerted control over the candidate, and campaign manager Juan Rodriguez is also blasted in Mehlenbacher’s letter.

Once considered a frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, Harris’ campaign has floundered as she’s been surpassed by other Democrats such as Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg.

Harris also was devastated from an exchange with anti-war Democrat Tulsi Gabbard in July. Gabbard took Harris to task for her track record in imprisoning casual drug users as a California prosecutor. Campaign insiders have pointed to the moment as a point of failure for the candidate.

Harris has lacked an ability to articulate clear policies and chart a direction for her campaign. She’s been outpaced on health care policy by progressive Democrats such as Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, and lacks a signature political issue to market herself to voters with.

The formerly vaunted California Senator will likely drop out within a matter of months, as fundraising dries up in the first quarter of the New Year. If anything, her departure from the race could swing a few meager percentage points of support to other Democrats such as Joe Biden.

LISTEN: Mike Bloomberg Joked About Droning His Political Opponents in Leaked Audio

Bloomberg was speaking at an exclusive Goldman Sachs crowd of political elites.

Published

Michael Bloomberg joked about using Predator drones to dispatch his political opponents at a Goldman Sachs event in 2016, stating that they’d be used on a “list of everybody that’s annoyed me or screwed me for the last 74 years.

Listen to the tasteless and vengeful remarks from the authoritarian billionaire here:

Bloomberg was speaking at a Goldman Sachs event held at New York’s Yankee Stadium. Audio of his remarks was leaked to the public by a former Goldman Sachs employee disenchanted with the controversial financial institution.

A Bloomberg spokesperson admitted that the drone remarks were “inappropriate” in a statement on the audio to CNN.

During his remarks at the Goldman Sachs-sponsored event, Bloomberg declared his loyalty to major banking and Wall Streets financial institutions. He said that his hypothetical presidential campaign would seek to “defend the banks,” and that Goldman Sachs’ Wall Street elites were “my peeps.”

Bloomberg had been considering an independent bid for the presidency in 2016, and appears to have been promoting the idea to powerful Wall Street donors in his Yankee Stadium remarks. That campaign didn’t happen, with the former New York City mayor falling in line with Hillary Clinton. Now, as socialist Senator Bernie Sanders appears favorably positioned to win the Democratic nomination for President, Bloomberg has unshelved the plan, with a goal of maintaining the establishment order of the Democratic Party.

The remarks are the latest in a string of questionable old quotes the ultrabillionaire former Mayor has been lambasted for. Bloomberg has called a father and son who died of heroin overdoses a “bad family” during a conversation about the opioid epidemic, and referred to farmers and machinists as simpletons.
