"Candidates who allow people like Robert Becker to lead their organisations shouldn't earn the highest office in our government", said the woman, naming the aide.
The allegations have cast a shadow on Sanders' potential 2020 run in a likely crowded field of Democratic contenders.
According to POLITICO, Mr. Becker "oversaw Sanders' Iowa campaign, then helped lead his efforts in Michigan, California and NY as deputy national field director" and has reportedly started calling former staffers to prep for Sanders' potential 2020 run over the past few months.
