Here’s What That Top Sanders Adviser Is Accused Of Doing”

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders apologized Thursday to women who say they were harassed while working on his 2016 presidential campaign. "I intend in every way to be actively involved in that process", Sanders wrote. However, to the women who were allegedly harassed, he said that "what they experienced was absolutely unacceptable and certainly not what a progressive campaign, or any campaign, should be about".

"The allegations that I have heard, that you have heard, speak to unacceptable behavior that must not be tolerated in any campaign, or in any workplace in our country".

He apologized "to any woman who felt that she was not treated appropriately, and of course if I run, we will do better next time", but went on to say that he was unaware of the allegations because he "was a little bit busy running around the country trying to make the case".

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.

"I categorically deny these allegations of improper and unprofessional conduct", Becker said in a statement.

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.

The woman warned about sexual misconduct on campaigns in a statement to Politico, saying no one should be allowed to run for president until they can guarantee a safe work place.

At the time the woman, who was in her 20s and wishes to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation from supporters of Sanders and Becker, chose not to report the incident because the campaign was over.

Sanders has not personally been the focus of any of the accusations.

Other former staffers spoke about experiences of sexual misconduct on the campaign trail to the the New York Times, which published a story earlier this month.

"I was little bit busy running around the country trying to make the case", Sanders told CNN on January 2. "Our standards, our procedures, our safeguards, were clearly inadequate".

Sanders himself has not yet made a decision on whether or not he will run for President in 2020, but released an e-mail late past year with the subject line "If I Run".

Sanders again Thursday denied knowledge of the alleged harassment, but top officials from his campaign have acknowledged that the gender make-up of any future campaign would need to look sufficiently different to address systemic sexism. Though the allegations against Sanders' campaign are far-reaching, the issue of sexual harassment has been pervasive across the political spectrum and beyond, as brought to light in the wake of the Me Too movement.
