Harris is also hiring a new chief speechwriter, Meghan Groob. She most recently worked as an editorial director at Gates Ventures, where she was a speechwriter to Bill Gates, according to a separate memo sent to staff seen by Reuters. She was previously a senior speechwriter in the Obama administration.
Groob will replace Kate Childs Graham, Harris’s director of speechwriting, who left at the end of February.
People responded by pointing out this is another example of the chaos of the Biden administration:
Her staff turnover rate is now above 100%…fast approaching Sheila Jackson Lee levels. https://t.co/pEYABEEQWb

Kinda feels like "Kamala Harris' speechwriter" is the modern-day equivalent of the king's food taster.
No upside if everything goes well. Nothing but disaster otherwise. https://t.co/BS6nCkalzY
