Sanders Apologizes for Harassment Among 2016 Campaign Staff

The campaign was celebrating the end of Sanders' improbable run for the nomination when Becker told the woman he wanted to have sex with her and made the reference to his "pole", the newspaper said.

Sanders said he was not aware of the harassment allegations against his advisor Robert Becker until they were reported in Politico.

Politico reported late Wednesday that Robert Becker - who oversaw Sanders' 2016 Iowa campaign, then helped lead his efforts in Michigan, California and NY as deputy national field director - allegedly approached a 20-year-old campaign staffer, grabbed her wrists and forcibly kissed her, "putting his tongue in her mouth as he held her".

This show of support for a Sanders 2020 presidential run comes hours after the latest in a series of reports of sexual misconduct involving members of the Sanders 2016 campaign.

West Ham considering move for Newcastle United midfielder Jonjo Shelvey
Players of his quality and other players like Declan Rice, Felipe Anderson, other clubs will want them, but that is one thing. The Austria global has reinvented himself as a centre-forward, scoring 11 times to keep the Hammers up last season.

"It just really sucks, because no one ever held him accountable".

Asked about the accusation, Friends of Bernie Sanders, the senator's main campaign committee, told Politico that "Robert Becker would not be part of any future campaigns". The victim did not formally report the incident at the time, but said she's now coming forward to ensure this doesn't happen again in 2020.

Weaver told CNN Wednesday that he thinks he would be useful to a Sanders 2020 campaign 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". He said he considered the allegation to be credible. But Jeff Weaver, who ran Sanders' 2016 campaign, stressed then that Becker was not doing so in an official capacity as he "doesn't work for the campaign because there is no campaign".

Sanders said his 2018 Senate re-election campaign instituted "some of the strongest sexual harassment policies in the country". They called Becker's alleged behavior "deplorable and fundamentally unacceptable". Female staffers also claimed they were paid significantly less than their male counterparts or subordinates.

Its diameter is only 60 thousand light years in comparison with 200 thousand the galaxy Andromeda or 100 thousand the milky Way. The Hubble Space Telescope's mind-blowing new image of the Triangulum Galaxy is nearly as enormous as the galaxy itself.

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.

Former campaign staffers wrote a letter to the senator in December to request a meeting with him and his advisers about "the issue of sexual violence and harassment on the 2016 campaign" in order to "mitigate the issue in the upcoming presidential cycle".

"To the women on my 2016 campaign who were harassed or mistreated, thank you, from the bottom of my heart for speaking out".

US Senator Bernie Sanders is apologising to women who've shared experiences of harassment by male supervisors while working on his 2016 presidential campaign.
