San­ders again apol­o­gizes for 2016 bias is­sues

The Charlotte Observer - - Front Page - — NEW YORK TIMES

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.

“What they ex­pe­ri­enced was ab­so­lutely un­ac­cept­able and cer­tainly not what a progressive cam­paign or any cam­paign should be about,” San­ders said dur­ing a sched­uled news con­fer­ence Thursday,

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.
