Neera Tanden Reveals Name of Anonymous Sexual Harassment Whistleblower

Neera Tanden, the president of the liberal Center for American Progress (CAP), revealed the name of an anonymous sexual harassment victim at an all-staff meeting Wednesday, according to BuzzFeed News.

Tanden’s misstep came one day after BuzzFeed revealed the pervasive nature of sexual misconduct at the liberal think tank, based on anonymous accounts.

According to a spokesperson for CAP, the reveal was “unintentional,” but employees told BuzzFeed that Tanden identified the victim “multiple times.”

“There is literally one thing you cannot do in this meeting and that is out the victim and Neera did it multiple times…It also destroys whatever small level of confidence in the system remained,” one CAP employee who was in the room said in a text to BuzzFeed News. “As a manager I don’t know how I can tell staff to trust the system when the head of the organization just outed the victim in front of the entire organization. It is impossible to trust her.”

CAP tried to defend Tanden, with a spokesperson saying she felt “horror” at the situation.

According to accounts of those in the room, the CAP president apologized multiple times in the meeting after mentioning the victim’s name.
