NDAs or Non-Disclosure Agreements are in the spotlight in the #MeToo era because they were used to buy the silence of women complaining about sexual harassment. They’ve also come up in the 2020 race because of their use by the Bloomberg campaign.
The Kamala Harris campaign had its own NDA issues which the media failed to cover.
The NDA issue isn’t black and white. Obviously they’re routinely used to cover up abuses and other problems. But, on the other hand, they can also prevent a problem person from harassing an organization or a person. Without the NDA, why settle a frivolous lawsuit at all? And there are plenty of those around. But now that the Dems have come out against NDAs as a social justice issue, oops.
Here’s a Sanders NDA.
A political advocacy group founded by Bernie Sanders entered into a nondisclosure agreement with an African American political consultant that bars her from discussing a lawsuit alleging racial discrimination at the organization and the Vermont senator’s 2016 presidential campaign.
The consultant, Tezlyn Figaro, confirmed the existence of the nondisclosure agreement to The Associated Press without providing additional details.
The deal is tied to a 2019 lawsuit in which Figaro said she was fired from the Sanders-created political group Our Revolution a year earlier due to her race and in “retaliation for complaining about the organization’s treatment towards her and African-Americans.” The lawsuit was settled out of court for an undisclosed amount of money. Though the lawsuit was aimed at Our Revolution, it included broad criticism of Sanders’ campaign, arguing an all-white leadership staff “was accused of racism” by black staffers and failed to engage black voters.
