Women of Color Quit Elizabeth Warren’s Nevada Campaign Citing “Toxic” Work Environment
“I felt like a problem — like I was there to literally bring color into the space but not the knowledge and voice that comes with it,”
Elizabeth Warren’s campaign is struggling. Not only did she finish third in Iowa, she just lost several campaign employees in Nevada, all women of color, who made some harsh allegations about their treatment.
It’s amazing that this is even being reported.
Alex Thompson of Politico has the story:
Women of color bolt Warren’s Nevada campaign in frustration
A half-dozen women of color have departed Elizabeth Warren’s Nevada campaign in the run-up to the state’s caucuses with complaints of a toxic work environment in which minorities felt tokenized and senior leadership was at loggerheads.
The six staffers have left the roughly 70-person Nevada team since November, during a critical stretch of the race. Three of them said they felt marginalized by the campaign, a situation they said didn’t change or worsened after they took their concerns to their superiors or to human resources staff.
“During the time I was employed with Nevada for Warren, there was definitely something wrong with the culture,” said Megan Lewis, a field organizer who joined the campaign in May and departed in December. “I filed a complaint with HR, but the follow-up I received left me feeling as though I needed to make myself smaller or change who I was to fit into the office culture.”
Another recently departed staffer, also a field organizer, granted anonymity because she feared reprisal, echoed that sentiment. “I felt like a problem — like I was there to literally bring color into the space but not the knowledge and voice that comes with it,” she said in an interview.
She added: “We all were routinely silenced and not given a meaningful chance on the campaign.
Thompson also provides a statement from the campaign:
Warren’s campaign did not dispute the women’s accounts but suggested they do not reflect a broader problem within her large, 31-state organization.

Warren’s problems don’t end there. Her campaign is getting concerned about cash flow, and is pulling some advertising. Would you believe she has a staff of over 1,000 people?
Annie Linskey writes at the Washington Post:
After disappointing Iowa vote, Warren says she needs to be ‘careful’ with money
Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s campaign is trying to conserve cash and pulled down TV ads in Nevada and South Carolina after a disappointing third-place standing in Iowa that failed to provide a fundraising bump.
“I just always want to be careful about how we spend our money,” Warren (D-Mass.) said Wednesday after being asked about the roughly $375,000 of TV ads pulled in two states that vote later this month.
She added that her cash comes from people who make small donations. “I just want to be very careful with this money,” she said.
Warren on Wednesday also yanked an additional $100,000 worth of ads, mostly in South Carolina markets but also in Reno, Nev., according to Advertising Analytics, which tracks campaign spending on television…
Compounding that problem, Warren also has among the largest campaigns, with more than 1,000 on staff, meaning she has a hefty payroll bill to meet each month and little extra that she can cut before chopping personnel.
According to the Real Clear Politics average of polls, Warren is currently at fourth place in New Hampshire.
What a shame.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
I can easily believe over 1,000 people. She’s a socialist so of course her staff numbers represent the huge bureaucracy she would have in order to do the work requiring a staff one quarter that size.
Bet Lizzie doesn’t even pay minimum wage – if I were a betting person.
Rahm Emmanuel gave away the DNC game plan we now see in full evil (implementation) right now in Iowa – back in December on ABC news.
Go to 7 1/2 minutes in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mayor Peter Paul is the Openly Gay Obama!!!!!!!!!!
See Rahm talk about how Peter Paul’s campaign is all about “UNITY!”

Warren is a COMMUNIST,not a socialist.
Whoever could anticipate that a candidate whose raison d’etre is to divide the citizenry into oppressed, victim groups based on some minor physical characteristics could herself be accused of being an unfeeling oppressor?
It’s a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma!
Most white liberal Democrats treat blacks poorly and condescendingly. Why not? They get their votes anyway.
They usually get away with bad treatment because blacks are (rightfully) afraid to cross them and the media covers it up.
I don’t think these black women have much of a future. They won’t get picked up by any other democratic campaign because they simply don’t know their place.
Their place? Which is down on the Democrat Party Plantation, barefoot and….
If she needs to replace a woman of color, perhaps Justin Trudeau would help out.
Now there’s a gal who knows how to keep her knees together!
Now, THAT’S funny! Thank you for that!
Alas, there is a downside to your comment. I now have a most disturbing image in my mind.
If it helps you cope with the image, imagine him in brownface dressed as a princess on a magic carpet ride singing “A Whole New World.” With Mayor Pete being the Prince.
You will find yourself cutting the rug instead. 😉
Just . . . stop . . . I’m only good for one belly laugh a day, and this is an overdose. Mercy. Please! I beg you! 🙂
There is also Governor Blackface. Is he trans/homo?
Does it matter? Are you interested?
I guess they found out Liz was not down for the struggle…one would think minorities could get along. Most American Blacks are more “white” than Liz is …ah…Native American. I am waiting for their “white privilege ” as the issue.
You left out the part where she did what she always does.
Blames America and ITS racism.
Warren blamed …..America and the demon white people. Not herself. ……..Frankly, she likely hired people as crazy as herself.
Shrieking Crow is really a disgusting pig.
She’s saved enough on clothes to balance several national budgets.
She’s disgusting, and as toxic as hillary clinton, pelosi and the rest of the scum infesting the democrat party.
It is just hard to believe this kind of garbage is elected to high office in our country.
But for PDJT (and Prof. Jacobson, let’s be honest) this POS could have very well been elected president.
What lurks behind walls of privacy. Diversity or color judgment (e.g. racism), breeds adversity, is a progressive condition under the State-established Pro-Choice religion.
“It’s amazing that this is even being reported.”
Well, its not being reported in the Boston Globe. Surprise, Surprise.
Instead they have an op-ed today entitled “The Case for Elizabeth Warren”. I would read it but its behind a pay wall as I have apparently exhausted my monthly allotment of free articles checking on local sports stories.
What is even meant by “Women of Color?” Were they black, asian, native american? Do we now have identifiable tiers of victimhood. I would really like to see the flowchart here, though I suspect it might require some linear algebra as we abstract into the 4th, 5th, and 6th dimensions in order to keep the connectivity intact. I think we need a chart with a number of columns, each with a relative rankings, say ethnicity, sex, gender, sexual orientation, religion, political leaning. This way, rather than saying Women of Color, we can describe them as a 4,2,3,2,2,2 to be specific about their victimhood status. Higher numbers win. FWIW, I am a token 1,1,1,1,1,1.
Beige is also a color.
You know the color all the money hungry/greedy interior designers and decorators have pushed for two decades.
Even in Obama’s Greatest Depression Evah those worthless folk where pushing that idea. “Don’t by automobiles in colors other than black or white cause it will hurt your re-sell value if you do!”
Why in EVERY pic is her head tilted?
i suspect it was taken while she was rocking her head back and forth ever so slightly, like a grammar school teacher does when announcing that the entire class will remain after school because [insert name of boy here] did/didn’t do something she demanded/doesn’t like.
The pimple on her tongue is so large it causes her head to tilt.
