Former Bernie NH Staffer Fired for History of Sexual Harassment

Brandon Maheu, a former Bernie Sanders state director in 2015, was fired from the gubernatorial campaign of Maine Democrat Mark Eves on Wednesday, due to a history of sexual harassment on the Sanders campaign, according to the Bangor Daily News.

The Eves campaign was directly contacted with allegations of sexual harassment that went on throughout the Democratic primary in 2015 and 2016.

They cut ties with the former Sanders staffer Thursday, announcing that the accusations stemmed from his conduct on the Sanders campaign:

[Eves campaign spokeswoman Jodi] Quintero declined to identify the woman, but said she alleges “firsthand experience with Brandon and sexual harassment incidents from the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign.”

Maheu became Sanders’ New Hampshire primary director in 2015. According to the BDN’s archives, Maheu has also been a field director for the Maine Democratic Party and the Maine House Democratic Campaign Committee.

The allegations had not been previously reported by the Sanders campaign.

According to a 2015 report, Maheu “over[saw] field, data, and get-out-the-vote efforts” for the Sanders campaign in New Hampshire.
