“Former Vice President Joe Biden criticized Sen. Bernie Sanders on Sunday, arguing the senator has been inadequate in his response to harassment members of Nevada’s Culinary Workers Union say they’ve faced from some of Sanders’s online supporters after the group took aim at Sanders’s health care proposal.
In an interview with Meet the Press’s Chuck Todd that aired Sunday, Biden said the democratic socialist candidate “may not be responsible for it, but he has some accountability.”
“You know me well enough to know if any of my supporters did that, I’d disown them. Flat disown them,” Biden told Todd. “The stuff that was said online. The way they threatened these two women who are leaders in that culinary union. It is outrageous.”
On the night of New Hampshire’s Democratic primary, February 11, Nevada’s Culinary Union made its opposition to a key plank of Sanders’s platform clear by publishing fliers claiming Sanders is the only candidate who would take away the union’s health care plan. Sanders, of course, wants to enact his Medicare-for-all proposal — a plan that would abolish private health insurance and replace it with a government insurance plan.
It was a pointed political move: The Culinary Union, which represents some 60,000 casino and hospitality workers in the state, is one of the most powerful political forces in Nevada — and the flier was released less than two weeks before the state holds its caucuses."
