Amy Klobuchar Announces Presidential Bid After Reports Of Abusive Workplace Behavior

Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar has officially announced her campaign to seek the 2020 Democratic nomination on Sunday during a speech in Minneapolis's frigid Boom Island Park.

With her announcement, Klobuchar has become the fifth Senate Democrat to announce her presidential bid, joining Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand.

...

Amy Klobuchar has laid the grounds for a presidential run on an image of “Minnesota nice.”

But behind the doors of her Washington, DC, office, the Minnesota Democrat ran a workplace controlled by fear, anger, and shame, according to interviews with eight former staffers, one that many employees found intolerably cruel. She demeaned and berated her staff almost daily, subjecting them to bouts of explosive rage and regular humiliation within the office, according to interviews and dozens of emails reviewed by BuzzFeed News.

That anger regularly left employees in tears, four former staffers said. She yelled, threw papers, and sometimes even hurled objects; one aide was accidentally hit with a flying binder, according to someone who saw it happen, though the staffer said the senator did not intend to hit anyone with the binder when she threw it.

“I cried. I cried, like, all the time,” said one former staffer.

On the other hand, I'd bet that it is hard to find employees willing to actually do work in DC.
