Bernie Sanders staffers manhandle press at Iowa State Fair
[WashingtonExaminer] DES MOINES, Iowa ‐ A campaign staffer for Bernie Sanders was screamed at by a local photojournalist who was repeatedly shoved following the Vermont senator's remarks at the Iowa State Fair.

The confrontation erupted after members of the campaign relentlessly pushed the local journalists to make room for Sanders as he made his way to various attractions at the fair on Sunday.

The press pool erupted in chaos as Sanders left the campaign event, which was hosted by the Des Moines Register.

"Do not put your hands on me. You keep pushing me," the female photographer yelled at the staffer.

Another journalist asked if a different female reporter was okay after she was pushed by Sanders' campaign workers many times.

Security for the event, as well as members of Sanders' campaign, repeatedly grabbed and shoved members of the press. One staffer for the Des Moines Register pushed a gate into a reporter for the Washington Examiner after telling him that "not all press" would be allowed to follow Sanders around.

In the press office, numerous journalists complained about what they saw as appalling treatment of the press.

Following the scuffle, Sanders went on to buy (ya right) and consume a corn dog from a local vendor.
