The chief of staff for Republican Rep. Nancy Mace has reportedly been fired and two other staffers have quit in her Capitol Hill office.

The departures were reported Tuesday by the Washington Examiner, amid what the newspaper describes as a "toxic work environment."

A spokesperson in the South Carolina lawmaker's congressional office respond to a request Wednesday to verify the departures by saying: "Our office does not comment on internal personnel matters." 

The newspaper has identified the fired chief of staff as Dan Hanlon and reports he was let go Friday.

A source told the Examiner there would be a complete staff turnover in January and that Hanlon took the popcorn machine from the office when he left.
