What that top Bernie Sanders adviser is accused of doing

By Henry Rodgers

A top adviser for Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’s 2016 presidential campaign has been accused of sexual misconduct against a female staffer.

The staffer, Robert Becker, who helped lead Sanders’s campaign in Michigan, New York, California and Iowa as a deputy national field director, has been accused of grabbing a female campaign staffer by her wrists and grabbing her head while kissing and putting his tongue in her mouth, Politico reported Wednesday.

Becker, 50, reportedly did this to the 20-something campaign staffer at a bar in Philadelphia in July 2016.

The woman warned about sexual misconduct on campaigns in a statement to Politico, saying no one should be allowed to run for president until they can guarantee a safe work place.

“Candidates who allow people like Robert Becker to lead their organizations shouldn’t earn the highest office in our government,” she said.

“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. This can’t happen in 2020. You can’t run for president of the United States unless you acknowledge that every campaign demands a safe work environment for every employee and volunteer,” the woman continued.

This comes after two dozen staffers from Sanders’s presidential campaign wrote a letter, which says there was a “dangerous dynamic” within the campaign in regards to “sexual violence and harassment.” Sanders told reporters on Jan. 3 that he was too busy running his campaign to know about the alleged sexual harassment that took place.

Sanders’s office did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation when asked about the allegations.

  1. Bernie has arrived.

    He flies from one speaking engagement, where he collects a big fee, and then goes to another speaking engagement, where he collects another big fee, all on private planes.

    It is not transparent to anybody what he actually does with all those big fees

    He flies private planes, because he is afraid to fly economy. He also does not want to be recognized by pro Trump folks who might want a word with him.

  2. If Bernie “colluded” with the Russians, the Bern loving media wouldn’t report it I haven’t heard anything. If the Bern played around, where’s the wifey concern?

  3. Sounds like this guy might have learned his actions from his boss. Bernie took his thinking to a much further level than Becker’s actions. https://www.mediaite.com/online/bernie-sanders-wrote-essay-on-sex-rape-fantasies-in-1972/ Are people eitherr so Bernie enamored or stupid not to see a relationship between what has happened in Sander’s campaign and what he thought and wrote about 30 years ago. I have to wonder as well, what were his experiences that gave him the insights that he wrote about with rape and other sexual matters.

    If Bernie was young and eligible, you would not want him dating your daughter and now that he is a dirty old man, you sure don’t want him as your president.

  4. I can’t wait to see how Socialist ” Sanders ” skirts this issue, he’ll have one good reason
    and let’s see who gets fired !!

    Since Sanders is the ‘Big Kahuna ” he should have been aware, so he’s no better than his
    right-hand man ” Becker “.

    Don’t forget ” Bernie ” in your new socialist democRAT’s arena your guilty until proven innocent
    as you did with Kavanaugh………………. Karma, you got to love it !!
