MAGA-loving Senate candidate's 'toxic work environment' caused by his girlfriend, finance manager: report
Former Ohio Republican Treasurer Josh Mandel is once again running for the U.S. Senate, this time for the seat that will open when GOP Senator Rob Portman retires. But the Mandel campaign reportedly is having trouble retaining staff, and morale appears low, thanks to the "toxic work environment" created by Mandel's campaign finance manager, Rachel Wilson, who is also his girlfriend.
"Finance staff members cried in the office on a regular basis," The Columbus Dispatch reports. And at least two of the three fundraisers have resigned "because of a toxic work environment created by Rachel Wilson," The Dispatch adds, citing sources.
"Wilson cussed out her subordinates, often demanded 12-hour workdays, berated them in front of others and called them names," according to The Dispatch. "Mandel and Wilson had blow-out arguments often laced with obscenities over campaign-related issues. 'They'd go out in the hallway and scream at each other,' the source said."
Mandel, a hard core Republican who opposes same-sex marriage and a woman's right to choose, has this mask-burning video pinned to the top of his Twitter page, declaring "FREEDOM."
