(HNewsWire) Two women working for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders‘ 2016 presidential campaigns say they faced sexual harassment from fellow campaign workers, according to a new report.

Lilian Adams, a 19-year-old who worked for Clinton, and Zoey Jordan Salsbury, an 18-year-old who worked for Sanders,stated they were sexually harassed while working for the candidates and felt the campaigns did not address their accusations well. Both Adams and Salsbury asked for the names of their alleged harassers to be withheld, citing safety and professional concerns.

Adams joined the Clinton campaign in 2015 and eventually worked with the Colorado Democratic Party as a paid organizer, according to the news outlet. She says she faced harassment for “months” while working in the state from a man who was a fellow organizer.

“He made multiple comments about my body, told people we were dating, would constantly try to get me to drink (I was 19), try to force me into situations where we were alone, encouraged me not to wear bras, etc.,” Adams told HuffPost.

While her abuser was eventually fired months after Adams first complained to superiors in June, he was reportedly later rehired in October to work on the campaign for a different state party, leaving her disillusioned. Clinton made the fair-and-equal treatment of women a central part of her campaign as the first woman to win the presidential nomination for a major political party...

Adams said she dealt with this harassment for months and mentioned it to a superior as early as June. The abuse began as homophobic remarks — Adams felt targeted, she said, because the man knew she was bisexual — and escalated from there. “He made multiple comments about my body, told people we were dating, would constantly try to get me to drink (I was 19), try to force me into situations where we were alone, encouraged me not to wear bras, etc.,” Adams said.

By August, Adams said she’d lost hope that the harassment would end or that her harasser would finally back away because she wasn’t interested in him. She again reached out to her superiors and asked them to take action. The campaign fired her harasser shortly thereafter. In text messages between Adams and one of her superiors they both expressed relief that the problem was over.

But even after her abuser was fired, his work with the party — and the campaign — wasn’t over. In October 2016, Adams said she discovered to her astonishment that he had been rehired the previous month to work on the campaign with a different state party. “So he was technically fired but still ended up working for Hillary via the [other state] Democratic Party,” said Adams.

It was a disappointing turn of events, and one that left Adams deeply disillusioned. “You have a lot of young passionate people who want to help change the world through Democratic politics,” she said. “Older Democratic operatives see this passion and exploit it, putting us in an extremely stressful and unhealthy work environment.”
