Sanders Apologizes for Harassment Among 2016 Campaign Staff

"It now appears that as part of our campaign there were some women who were harassed or mistreated", Sanders wrote in a message he tweeted out Thursday afternoon to his almost 9 million followers.

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.

After the story came out, Sanders apologized on CNN to "any woman who feels like she was not treated appropriately" and said he wasn't aware of the problems at the time.

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.

He projected more contrition on Thursday, saying that "our standards, our procedures, our safeguards, were clearly inadequate". "What they experienced was absolutely unacceptable and certainly not what a progressive campaign, or any campaign, should be about".

"I'm not going to sit here and tell you we did everything right in terms of human resources", said Sanders.

"Candidates who allow people like Robert Becker to lead their organizations shouldn't earn the highest office in our government", the woman said. And Sanders has been lambasted for what many say was a tone deaf and inept response to the allegations.

Becker, 50, has denied the allegations.

Sanders told reporters on Capitol Hill he was unaware of the alleged misconduct by Becker.

"It just really sucks because no one ever held him accountable and he kept pushing and pushing and seeing how much he could get away with", she added.

"This can't happen in 2020", the woman said in Politico.

"Every woman in this country who goes to work today or tomorrow has the right to make sure that she is working in an environment that is free of harassment, which is safe and which is comfortable". They claimed that, when they detailed those concerns to campaign superiors, they were sometimes ignored, and in one case, laughed off.

Allegations of sexual misconduct and an "untenable and risky dynamic that developed during [the Sanders] campaign" have dogged the Vermont senator in recent weeks, according to Politico.
