Presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren’s campaign has fired its national organizing director following complaints of “inappropriate behavior,” a spokeswoman said Friday.
The campaign’s leadership had received multiple complaints over the past two weeks about top aide Richard McDaniel and hired outside counsel to investigate, the spokeswoman said.
“I want us to have a campaign that lives up to our values and that lifts up inclusivity,” Warren told reporters of the firing.
Details about the nature of the complaints were not released; an insider told Politico, which first reported the story, that there were no reports of sexual assault.
McDaniel said in a statement that he would never intentionally engage in behavior “inconsistent” with his own values or those of Warren’s campaign.
“If others feel that I have, I understand it is important to listen even when you disagree,” he said, confirming he was no longer on the campaign team.
The Massachusetts senator is neck-and-neck with Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden.
