Another aide to Kamala Harris joined the departure of staff who left the vice president’s office amid allegations of unrest and dysfunction.
Acesparks reported on Wednesday that Vincent Evans, the veep’s deputy director of public relations and intergovernmental affairs, has resigned from his role at Capitol Hill.
Evans is leaving the VP office to join the Congressional black caucus, chaired by MP Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio) and a minority advocate.
He is the latest employee to resign over allegations of tensions in Harris’s office, including a horrific report last month describing him as a “bully” for “heartbreaking criticism.”
But despite these reports, a source close to Evans told Acesparks that he was still on good terms with Harris and claimed that the resignation was not related to previous departures.
“I am very proud to have been appointed executive director of the Congressional Blacks Group,” Evans said in a statement to the network.
“I started my career in Washington as a member of the CBC, so I know the tremendous leadership and impact of this caucus in Congress and across the country.”
Evans worked with the Harris team before the 2020 election and during the presidential transition.
Harris ’general secretary and longtime assistant Symone Sanders and communications director Ashley Etienne left last month. Peter Wells, director of press operations, also resigned.
White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said at the time that leaving Harris’s office was “natural” and “a very positive thing.”
“Working in the first year of the White House is exciting and rewarding, but also challenging and arduous,” he said at a press briefing.
“If you look at the precedent of the past, it’s only natural that employees who have put their heart and soul into it will be ready to move on to a new task in a few years, and that applies to many.”
