At least five people have left Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) new political group after Sanders brought in his campaign manager to lead it, Politico reported Tuesday.
Weaver, who ran Sanders's presidential campaign that ended last month, was made president of the group Our Revolution, causing the exodus before the group officially launches.
“A majority of the staff quit as a result of Jeff joining,” one person told the news outlet, adding they had joined the group with a promise from Sanders that Weaver would not be involved.
“Over the last few days, almost the entire staff resigned from the organization because they would not work for Jeff Weaver or help to enact Jeff’s vision for the organization in any way,” one of the former staffers added Monday.http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/292309-sanders-group-loses-five-staffers-pre-launch
