Bernie Sanders apologised Thursday for "unacceptable" sexual harassment that occurred on his 2016 presidential campaign, directly addressing an issue that could weigh on the senator's potential 2020 White House bid.

Sanders' principal campaign committee, Friends of Bernie Sanders, called Becker's alleged conduct "deplorable and fundamentally unacceptable" and announced that Becker "would not be a part of any future campaigns". "We can't just talk about ending sexism and discrimination".

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.

It was beaten 5-1 at Manchester United just before Christmas and was also thrashed 5-0 by Man City at home in September. The 29-year old completed three dribbles and showed his willingness to burst forward against Cardiff City on Tuesday.

Sanders said he was not aware of the harassment allegations against his advisor Robert Becker until they were reported in Politico. But when Becker contacted her again for a potential rerun for Sanders in the 2020 election campaign, she came out strongly over the incident.

The Sanders situation hit headlines after November's midterm elections, in which the #MeToo women's movement - propelled by female voters' frustration with President Donald Trump, who himself stands accused of assault or harassment by multiple women - helped sweep Democrats to victory.

"I was little bit busy running around the country trying to make the case", Sanders told CNN on January 2.

He projected more contrition on Thursday, saying that "our standards, our procedures, our safeguards, were clearly inadequate". Bernie Sanders continues to take hits over allegations of sexual misconduct during the 2016 campaign, supporters of the Vermont independent are planning almost 400 events across all 50 states Saturday to back another White House run. It must be a reality in our daily lives.

Becker then grabbed the woman and held her wrists as he forcibly kissed her, putting his tongue in her mouth, the woman said. The Sanders camp, though, has said he's not on the payroll. They claimed that, when they detailed those concerns to campaign superiors, they were sometimes ignored, and in one case, laughed off.

"Boy is that a tough answer to defend, of course", responded Todd, "because if you're running to be the president of the United States, If you can't manage a campaign how do you manage a country?" The campaign staffers had gathered at the restaurant to mark the end of Sanders's presidential bid.

There's a reason why he's a greatest because you can't be that great and not have such an awesome weapon like that serve. I'm sorry it had to finish. "It was a great experience". "This guy is great, both off the court and on the court".

It has been reported that Weaver's decisions around complaints of sexual misconduct was troublesome and that there was no clear path for complaints to be made, according to the New York Times. He did tout the work done on his 2018 Senate reelection campaign, which "established some of the strongest sexual harassment policies in the country".
