Bernie Sanders posted a new video today that pushes equality. However, the same Bernie Sanders who is running for president NOW, was accused of sexism on his campaign in 2016 and paying women staffers less than male staffers. It's just funny how this guy seems to jump on whatever bandwagon the Democrats are on just so he can pander more votes from people who may not know any better.
Here is the video he posted today:
In contrary, here are some quotes from publications that discussed his sexism allegations and unequal pay among male and female staffers.
Politico stated that "More than two dozen women and men who worked on Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign are seeking a meeting with the senator and his top political advisers to “discuss the issue of sexual violence and harassment on the 2016 campaign, for the purpose of planning to mitigate the issue in the upcoming presidential cycle,” according to a copy of letter obtained by POLITICO."
Vox provided some details from a story posted in the NY Times, stating that they "published a story on Wednesday afternoon detailing stories of mistreatment of women and gender pay disparity from former Sanders staffers. Some women who worked for the Vermont senator said their complaints about sexual harassment were ignored or brushed aside, or that they were “taken aback” to see how much less female staffers made in comparison to their male counterparts."
Sexism. Non-equal pay. All of this going on in a Democratic candidates campaign in 2016 and now he's here pandering the whole "equal" thing.
Is Bernie Sanders being honest, or just being a big fraud who jumps on the hot topics to try and win the DNC nod?
Vote Now! Should we KICK Adam Schiff Out of Office?
