Bernie Sanders' political future in doubt

Bernie Sanders' political future in doubt

Todd then said Sanders had the worst start to 2019, especially compared to Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who has already declared her 2020 presidential campaign.

According to POLITICO, Mr. Becker "oversaw Sanders' Iowa campaign, then helped lead his efforts in Michigan, California and NY as deputy national field director" and has reportedly started calling former staffers to prep for Sanders' potential 2020 run over the past few months.

A former female campaign staffer for Sen.

He thanked the women who did come forward with complaints of sexual misconduct and ensured that his 2018 Senate re-election campaign had "established some of the strongest sexual harassment policies in the country".

A top adviser for Bernie Sanders' 2016 campaign is accused of forcibly kissing a female staffer and making a reference to her riding his "pole" at a hookah bar during the Democratic National Convention, a report said Wednesday.

He continued, "To the women in that campaign who were harassed or mistreated I apologize".




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'.

50-year-old former convention floor leader Robert Becker has been accused of telling a 20-year-old subordinate he wanted to have sex with her and forcibly kissing her during the final night of the Democratic National Convention. This can't happen in 2020. Sanders denied knowing about the settlement to reporters.

"Last month, Sen. Sanders said grassroots support would determine whether or not he decides to run for president again", Winnie Wong, co-founder of the People for Bernie, said in a statement, "We are here, and we are ready to support him all the way to finish line". They claimed that, when they detailed those concerns to campaign superiors, they were sometimes ignored, and in one case, laughed off. Becker, however, said he was just tasked with reviewing "potentially questionable or damaging social media posts of potential hires". Additionally, numerous women have complained they were paid less than men and forced into inappropriate and uncomfortable situations, according to The New York Times.

The Vermont independent said on Capitol Hill that the alleged misconduct by male aides "was absolutely unacceptable and certainly not what a progressive campaign or any campaign should be about". "Later in the night, Becker approached the woman and grabbed her wrists. I apologize", Sanders tweeted.

Thursday, he said the country needs a "cultural revolution" in order to "change workplace attitudes and behavior".
