A former Bernie Sanders campaign staffer has filed a racial discrimination lawsuit against the pro-Sanders group, Our Revolution.
On “Fox & Friends” Monday, Tezlyn Figaro, who served as director for racial justice issues on the Sanders campaign in 2016, said she and others have been “concerned for years with issues of racism” among people working for the Vermont senator.
“I’m not saying he himself is racist, but his movement is. It is a reason why no one from the 2016 black outreach department is there working for Senator Sanders,” she said.
Figaro said it was “important to [her]” to file the federal lawsuit laying out her allegations and what she experienced in 2016.
