Merced Sun-Star - - News -

For a sec­ond time in eight days, Sen. Bernie San­ders apol­o­gized to women on his 2016 pres­i­den­tial cam­paign, as he seeks to put be­hind him a se­ries of da­m­ag­ing re­ports about the mis­treat­ment of fe­male staff mem­bers that threat­ens to un­der­cut an­other likely White House bid.

Sev­eral of San­ders’ top aides have been im­pli­cated in the in­ci­dents of harassment, sex­ism and gen­der dis­crim­i­na­tion, and Jeff Weaver, his cam­paign man­ager, has said he would not re­turn in the same role if San­ders runs again.

San­ders has not yet an­nounced he is run­ning for pres­i­dent.
