The woman said she informed Sanders's 2016 campaign manager Jeff Weaver of the alleged assault.

Mr Becker denies any harassment, and no criminal charges have been filed.

Politico reported late Wednesday that Robert Becker - who oversaw Sanders' 2016 Iowa campaign, then helped lead his efforts in Michigan, California and NY as deputy national field director - allegedly approached a 20-year-old campaign staffer, grabbed her wrists and forcibly kissed her, "putting his tongue in her mouth as he held her".

Becker, 50, reportedly did this to the 20-something campaign staffer at a bar in Philadelphia in July 2016. This can't happen in 2020.

She said she felt compelled to speak out after Mr Becker travelled to SC in December on a trip to recruit future campaign workers for Mr Sanders.

The woman did not report the incident at the time since the campaign was finished but has come forward now as Becker has been involved with potential 2020 groundwork. "You can't run for President of the United States unless you acknowledge that every campaign demands a safe work environment for every employee and volunteer". He said he considered the allegation to be credible.

CNN reported on Wednesday that Jeff Weaver, the longtime Sanders confidant and 2016 campaign manager, will not return to the role he held in 2016 should Sanders made a decision to run again, and Friends of Bernie Sanders confirmed this to VTDigger.

"To be clear: No one who committed sexual harassment in 2016 would be back if there were a 2020 campaign", the group added. Friends of Bernie Sanders also called Becker's alleged misconduct "deplorable and fundamentally unacceptable". The Vermont senator also said he wasn't aware of a reported $30,000 settlement Becker was named in to resolve a discrimination claim against his 2016 campaign. Becker, however, said he was just tasked with reviewing "potentially questionable or damaging social media posts of potential hires".

Earlier this month, former women staffers told the New York Times that, while working on Sanders' first campaign, they experienced "sexual harassment and demeaning treatment, as well as pay disparity" problems - and that there was no one to turn to for help.

Sen. Sanders addressed the allegations on CNN in a manner that some regarded as dismissive.

"Yes, I was a little bit busy running around the country trynna make the case", he said when asked if he had missed the harassment on his campaign.

A former Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) campaign aide is accusing her supervisor, Robert Becker, of inappropriate behavior escalating to a forced grab and kiss on the night of the 2016 Democratic Convention, according to a Wednesday Politico report.
