Democratic Senator Klobucharis being accused of abusing her congressional staff members.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) is facing scrutiny over her treatment of congressional staff and her workplace demeanor, just days ahead of her decision about whether she will run for president in 2020.
A number of former staffers who worked for Klobuchar spoke anonymously to BuzzFeed News, accusing the senator of often berating staff over small mistakes and creating a hostile work environment.
BuzzFeed interviewed eight former aides and reviewed dozens of emails.
A spokesperson for Klobuchar did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.
BuzzFeed reported that Klobuchar often yelled, threw papers and flung objects and aides were regularly left in tears, citing four former staffers.
One staffer was hit with a binder, though Klobuchar did not mean to hit the person, somebody who saw the incident told the publication.
"I cried. I cried, like, all the time," one former staffer told BuzzFeed.
