Claudia Sahm, a former director of macroeconomic policy at the Washington Center for Equitable Growth, Boushey’s think tank, published an account of her and other former employees’ experiences working with Boushey on her personal website Tuesday night. She wrote that after her experience, “I learned that Heather’s abusive behavior was a pattern.”

Former subordinates and employees have alleged that Boushey was “phenomenally incompetent as a manager” and had “frequent episodes of yelling and swearing.” The complaints were serious enough that the think tank where she worked hired a management coach to work with her to improve her management style around 2015.

The Biden transition team declined to comment or make Boushey available.
