Sanders apologises for harassment by 2016 campaign staff
Jan 13, 2019, 01:07
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.
Sanders said he was unaware of the alleged misconduct by Becker, who has recently taken unofficial travel in a bid to bolster a possible 2020 presidential campaign by the senator. "You can't run for President of the United States unless you acknowledge that every campaign demands a safe work environment for every employee and volunteer". Friends of Bernie Sanders, the senator's main campaign committee, said Becker would not be a part of any future campaigns in response to the allegation against him. What they experienced was absolutely unacceptable and certainly not what a progressive campaign or any campaign should be about, ' he said Thursday on Capitol Hill.

Sanders, a potential 2020 contender, conceded in his Thursday statement that the "standards and safeguards" on the campaign were "inadequate". The New York Times reported last week that a Latino outreach strategist for the campaign complained to a supervisor that she had been harassed by a campaign surrogate. Sanders had issued an apology and said he wasn't aware of the incidents at the time.
"Sanders already faces tough primary competition from several women, including Warren, Harris, Gillibrand, and maybe even Tulsi Gabbard who was a key supporter in 2016", he said.
Allegations that male members of his campaign had harassed and discriminated against female campaign workers have been circulating for weeks as the senator weighs a potential second presidential run. "Clearly, in this country, we need a cultural revolution to change workplace attitudes and behavior". "I apologize", Sanders tweeted.
