BS hasn't met with them yet. The

two dozen staffers have asked to meet with him "in person". It's his staff who are taking this seriously right now..

Former staff on Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) 2016 presidential campaign are requesting a formal meeting with the politician to discuss “the issue of sexual violence and harassment on the 2016 campaign” in order to “mitigate the issue in the upcoming presidential cycle.”

“We — the people who worked on Bernie 2016 — know that much of the success of our campaign was due to the intense commitment, passion and sacrifice of women, people of color and LGBT staffers,” the letter states. “In recent weeks there has been an ongoing conversation on social media, in texts, and in person, about the untenable and dangerous dynamic that developed during our campaign.”

The former staffers requested a physical meeting with Sanders and his top advisers. They also asked that, following the meeting, Sanders advisers create “a follow-up plan for implementing concrete sexual harassment policies and procedures” as well as a “commitment to hiring diverse leadership.”

Will Pitt Owns a Chunk of Traitortrump..

He's like Susan Sarandon according to this poster who read his FB posts..

243. I saw with my own eyes on his FB his statements he would vote Trump Over Hillary. He said it many times, and urged people NOT TO VOTE if they wanted to vote for Hillary, because TRump would be a better President than her.

Another sister and I were at the NYC Protests

against the War on Iraq, Feb 15, 2003.. and we were there for at least 7 hours and no toilets.

Ah, but we were all younger then.

13 hours, eh? to get a place to stand no doubt. Come to think of it the weather was about 20 degrees when we were there in Feb. We danced at the end to get warm and were very grateful for body warmth from so many people. I counted about 1 Million then. I don't care what the NYT said.

Yeah, you can say

that! Cheers!

My sister in California said she saw Times Square on TV and they were holding umbrellas! And there were a Million Peeps there!

We were there in 2001.
