Sanders Apologizes for Harassment Among 2016 Campaign Staff

While Sanders is reportedly becoming more serious by the day about forging a second White House bid to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020, dozens of women and men who worked on the his 2016 presidential campaign have signed a letter requesting a meeting with the Vermont senator and his top political advisers "to discuss the issue of sexual violence and harassment on the 2016 campaign, for the goal of planning to mitigate the issue in the upcoming presidential cycle", Politico reported. "What they experienced was absolutely unacceptable and certainly not what a progressive campaign, or any campaign, should be about..."

'We can't just talk about ending sexism and discrimination.

Politico reported Wednesday night that the head of Sanders's Iowa caucus campaign in 2016 has been accused of forcibly kissing a female subordinate on the final night of the Democratic National Convention in July 2016.

"Candidates who allow people like Robert Becker to lead their organisations shouldn't earn the highest office in our government", said the woman, naming the aide.

The Sanders situation hit headlines after November's midterm elections, in which the #MeToo women's movement - propelled by female voters' frustration with President Donald Trump, who himself stands accused of assault or harassment by multiple women - helped sweep Democrats to victory. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), forcibly kissed a female staffer shortly after the Democratic National Convention.

In his statement Thursday, Sanders admitted his 2016 campaign's "standards and safeguards were inadequate".

Friends of Bernie Sanders, Sanders" main campaign committee, told Politico in a statement: "Robert Becker would not be a part of any future campaigns.' The campaign added: 'To be clear: no one who committed sexual harassment in 2016 would be back if there were a 2020 campaign, ' and described Becker's conduct as 'deplorable and fundamentally unacceptable'. It must be a reality in our daily lives. Sanders denied knowing about the settlement to reporters. Rather, Weaver told CNN, he'd serve as "a strategic adviser that needs to deal with some of the 30,000-foot issues as opposed to the management of a day-to-day campaign".

"Boy is that a tough answer to defend, of course", responded Todd, "because if you're running to be the president of the United States, If you can't manage a campaign how do you manage a country?" Additionally, numerous women have complained they were paid less than men and forced into inappropriate and uncomfortable situations, according to The New York Times.
