Velma Hart, who told President Obama she was “exhausted” of defending him and became the face of disappointed Americans this fall, has lost her job.
In another casualty of a weak national economy, Ms. Hart learned late last week that she’d been laid off as chief financial officer of AmVets, a non-profit veterans service organization based outside of Washington, D.C.
“They called me in on a Friday afternoon,” Ms. Hart told CNBC in an interview on Monday, “and said they had made a decision…we should make that cut.”
Hart will be on CNBC Tuesday starting with 1:30 pm New York time.
