Interns On Clinton And Sanders Campaigns Allege Sexual Harassment

According to a new report, young women working on both the Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders Campaigns now allege sexual harassment….

CLINTON CAMPAIGN: The Huffington Post reports that while then 19-year-old Lilian Adams worked as a paid organizer for the Democratic Party and the Clinton campaign in Colorado, a man displayed harassing and generally creepy behaviour towards her. Adams told HuffPost, ” He made multiples comments about my body, told people we were dating, would constantly try to get me to drink ( I was 19), try to force me into situations where we were alone, encouraged me not to wear bras, etc.”

Adams signed on to the Clinton Campaign as an intern at its Brooklyn, New York, headquarters in October 2015. She wore many hats: “I was on the digital organizer team and as assistant to the digital director, the deputy digital director, the chief digital officer and the [chief technical officer], “she said. Seven months later, in May 2016 she relocated to Colorado to work with the state Democratic Party and the Clinton campaign as a paid organizer. Her job connected the two, promoting the former secretary of state and other Democrats on the state’s ballot. It was in the Colorado office that Adams said she faced harassment from a fellow organizer.

SANDERS CAMPAIGN: In October 2015, Zoey  Jordan Salsbury became president of American University Student for Bernie, a volunteer position, her main point of contact in the Vermont senator’s campaign was an intern, another college student in Washington, D.C. When he made unwanted advances towards her, Salsbury identified as her harasser did not respond to a request for comment. But her account was confirmed by her friend Colin Moir, a fellow member of the American University group. “he had been harassing her sexually,” said Moir, adding that Salsbury  “was not able to speak to somebody higher up and report it.” Like Adams, Salsbury felt helpless to stop the harassment. There was no culture of accountability in the D.C. office of the Sanders campaign, she said, and she didn’t think people would listen to a young volunteer. it was “a culture that didn’t discuss office policies with volunteers or make it clear that harassment wasn’t tolerated,” said Salsbury. Salsbury did hear from the Sanders campaign after she posted about the incident this month on social media.

I wonder where all these men learned all this disgusting behavior. They are not Ready for Time Prime Players and it shows!
    One should send these men back home to M & D to have a regroup and learn how to be respectful of the woman they work with. Oh so Sad!!
