Sen. Bernie Sanders top 2016 campaign adviser accused of sexual misconduct

A top aide for Bernie Sanders is being accused of sexual misconduct during his time in the Vermont senator’s 2016 presidential campaign.

50-year-old former convention floor leader Robert Becker has been accused of telling a 20-year-old subordinate he wanted to have sex with her and forcibly kissing her during the final night of the Democratic National Convention. 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.

This comes just a week after Sanders acknowledged his campaign failed to handle allegations properly.

“I’m not going to sit here and tell you we did everything right in terms of human resources,” said Sanders. “In terms of addressing the needs that I’m hearing from them now, that women felt disrespected, that there was sexual harassment, which was not dealt with as effectively as possible.”

Political leanings be damned. Would any other reaction be expected?

5. Well I have to agree with you there!

Now in fairness to him (who, btw, I did not support in the last Democratic primaries and am not likely to support in the primaries next year), he does seem to be trying to address it. Is it adequate, or too little, too late? In these days that question will need to be seriously addressed. It seems like, for now anyway, the matter is mostly for the leftwing of the Democratic Party to deal with.

6. Yes, he tried to address a general complaint of harassment, but this is a top advisor. Deserves an

explanation / guarantee that this guy is off the team in 2020

8. Again, can't argue with that one!

No one is so special that they should be spared the spotlight over issues like this.
