Bernie 2016 Staffers Complain Of Sexual Harassment

Talking Points Memo reports:

As Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) gears up for another likely run at the presidency, women who worked on his last campaign are voicing their pain and anger after experiencing indignities including sexual harassment and pay inequality.

As first reported by Politico, 2016 Bernie alums got the ball rolling Sunday with a letter to the senator’s campaign committee asking for a meeting to discuss the sexism that clouded the previous campaign, and devise methods to prevent it from happening again.

A Wednesday New York Times report delved into specific experiences female staffers endured, as well as some reactions by former senior staffers.
