Liz Warren fires National Organizing Director after ‘inappropriate’ behavior

Liz Warren looked like she had a real shot of overtaking Biden this week, but then scandal struck.

Just when it looked like Senator Liz Warren was going to sprint past the rest of the democratic field for 2020, her campaign found its first bit of real controversy.

Sure, Warren has disappointed the nation in the past, most recently after taking a DNA test that was unable to establish any hint of her fabled Cherokee ancestry.  This embarrassing admission forced the Massachusetts Senator to go on a bit of an apology tour, speaking to Native Americans around the nation.

But this is all water under the bridge for the Democrats, who are now fully behind Liz Warren, pushing her ever closer to overtaking Joe Biden in national polling.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) campaign on Friday fired its national organizing director Rich McDaniel amid accusations of “inappropriate behavior.”

Warren campaign spokesperson Kristen Orthman released a statement on Friday, confirming that the campaign had been receiving “multiple complaints regarding inappropriate behavior by Rich McDaniel.”

“Over the past two weeks, senior campaign leadership received multiple complaints regarding inappropriate behavior by Rich McDaniel,” Orthman told Politico.

The statement went on…

“Over the same time period, the campaign retained outside counsel to conduct an investigation,” she continued.

“Based on the results of the investigation, the campaign determined that his reported conduct was inconsistent with its values and that he could not be a part of the campaign moving forward,” Orthman added.

There were no immediate descriptions of the behavior available to the press as of this writing, with the folks at Politico reporting that there were no indications that this was a case of sexual assault.
