Bernie Sanders apologizes amid new harassment allegations against staffers

Sen. Bernie Sanders apologized to women who were sexually harassed on his 2016 presidential campaign and thanked them 'from the bottom of my heart for speaking out'. Per the outlet, top Sanders "aides did not endorse, but did not disavow, either".

"Yes, I was a little bit busy running around the country trynna make the case", he said when asked if he had missed the harassment on his campaign. Our standards, our procedures, our safeguards were clearly inadequate, ' he added.

Becker grabbed the same woman's wrists later in the night, then moved his hands to her head and forcibly kissed her, putting his tongue in her mouth, according to the woman and other sources.

Weaver told Politico that "without getting into the specifics of an incident where the woman involved has not given me express permission to speak, I only became aware recently".

Rallies are planned in critical early primary states New Hampshire, Iowa, California and Texas. This can't happen in 2020. "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", she added. The alleged assault, he wrote, is "at odds with my recollection of a late evening filled with many hugs and kisses and tears and conversations about what's next".

Hillary Clinton officially secured the Democratic presidential nomination over Sanders at the convention. Becker, however, said he was just tasked with reviewing "potentially questionable or damaging social media posts of potential hires".

A former female campaign staffer for Sen.

In an interview Wednesday, former campaign manager Jeff Weaver told the network that he had never meant to manage a potential 2020 campaign.

His apology comes as he contemplates another White House bid under the Democratic banner in 2020.

Sanders has been on defense since the New York Times reported that several women on his 2016 campaign reported episodes of sexual harassment, demeaning treatment, and pay disparity.

It has been reported that Weaver's decisions around complaints of sexual misconduct was troublesome and that there was no clear path for complaints to be made, according to the New York Times. A former Sanders delegate called the culture an "entire wave of rotten sexual harassment that seemingly was never dealt with".

A top adviser for Bernie Sanders' 2016 presidential campaign stands accused of forcibly kissing a woman staffer and making a reference to her riding his "pole" at a hookah bar after the Democratic National Convention had concluded, Politico reported Wednesday. One woman told the Times she made $2,400 a month, but a younger man who was supposed to work under her made more than double that amount.
