Employees are fleeing the Clinton Foundation because Chelsea Clinton is so disagreeable to work with, a new report in Page Six alleges. An insider claims her personality is causing “extremely high turnover” and turning the nonprofit into a “bloated slush fund.”
“A lot of people left because she was there. A lot of people left because she didn’t want them there,” the anonymous source said. “She is very difficult.”
The 35-year-old daughter of Bill and Hillary came on board as vice chairman in 2011, and since then several senior level staffers have left.
Clinton — who apparently has a personal staff almost as big as her dad’s — reportedly pushed out one CEO after he tried to hire his own communications professional and “actually tried to run the place.” Shortly after, Clinton hired her McKinsey colleague Eric Braverman to take the CEO’s spot.
“He [Bruce Lindsey] didn’t understand that that wasn’t what he was supposed to be doing. He was pushed out.”
A spokesperson and founding CEO have also left. Matt McKenna took a job with Uber and Ginny Ehrlich went to the Robert Johnson Wood Foundation.
“It’s sad to see what’s happening. The operational planning has gone downhill,” another source said.
None of the sources’ names were disclosed. (RELATED: Chelsea Clinton — Employed By Her Parents — Speaks Out About Workplace Equality)
