Sanders had issued an apology and said he wasn't aware of the incidents at the time.

According to Wednesday reports, Jeff Weaver will not lead the potential campaign despite being a longtime member of Sanders' inner circle and managing his 2016 campaign for president.

Sanders staffers have been actively discussing the need for significant differences in the gender makeup in the leadership of any future presidential campaign.

Over two dozen 2016 campaign staff alumni wrote a letter seeking a meeting with Sanders to "discuss the issue of sexual violence and harassment on the 2016 campaign, for the objective of planning to mitigate the issue in the upcoming presidential cycle".

As Sanders and surrogates explore a 2020 presidential bid, more than a dozen former female and male staffers who worked on the 2016 campaign signed a letter requesting a meeting with Sanders and his leadership team "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".

He continued, "To the women in that campaign who were harassed or mistreated I apologize". Earlier Thursday, reports surfaced that a top aide was accused of sexually assaulting a female subordinate.

Politico had previously reported "that a 20-something female staffer said she was forcibly kissed by a top Sanders adviser at a bar in Philadelphia on the final night of the Democratic National Convention".

"Candidates who allow people like Robert Becker to lead their organizations shouldn't earn the highest office in our government", said the staffer, who asked to remain anonymous out of fear of retaliation by Sanders and Becker loyalists. "Then he moved his hands to her head and forcibly kissed her, putting his tongue in her mouth as he held her, the woman and other sources said". This can't happen in 2020.

Sanders is one of several Democrats who have announced or are likely to announce a presidential bid. Sen. In 2016, as the size of our campaign exploded we made efforts to make it a positive experience for people. Becker, however, said he was just tasked with reviewing "potentially questionable or damaging social media posts of potential hires". A former Sanders delegate called the culture an "entire wave of rotten sexual harassment that seemingly was never dealt with". "Later in the night, Becker approached the woman and grabbed her wrists". What they experienced was absolutely unacceptable and certainly not what a progressive campaign or any campaign should be about, ' he said Thursday on Capitol Hill.

Thursday, he said the country needs a "cultural revolution" in order to "change workplace attitudes and behavior". And Sanders has been lambasted for what many say was a tone deaf and inept response to the allegations.
