Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will meet on Wednesday with women who alleged they experienced sexual harassment and sexism while working for his 2016 presidential campaign, reports BuzzFeed News.

Details: Sanders took heat for his initial apology earlier this month regarding instances of harassment during his campaign — in which he stated he didn't know about the alleged incidents because he was "a little bit busy running around the country." The Vermont senator issued another apology last week for the "unacceptable behavior" on his campaign after a Politico report singled out one of his top 2016 aides.
