Hillary Clinton’s husband is a rapist and she shamelessly protected him, but it appears he is not the only one she’s protected.
Now, according to a The New York Times report, Clinton also protected one of her top staffers in 2008 when he was accused of sexual harassment.
Former senior faith advisor Burns Strider was accused by a younger female staffer of sexual harassment. However, instead of addressing the issue and firing Strider, Clinton kept him on the campaign. His pay was docked for several weeks and had to take counseling.
The woman who accused him? She was sent to new job.
That hardly seems like justice if you ask me.
Strider was accused by a woman who shared an office with him of rubbing her shoulders without permission, kissing her on the forehead and sending her a number of sexually suggestive emails. The woman shared the complaint with Patti Solis Doyle, Clinton’s then-campaign manager, who brought it to the candidate’s attention.
But Clinton personally requested that Strider remain on staff. The young woman signed a nondisclosure agreement upon leaving the campaign and declined to comment for the Times story.
Strider was fired years later from pro-Clinton PAC Correct The Record, amid allegations that he harassed another young female co-worker while at the organization.
A Clinton spokesman gave a statement from the Utrecht, Kleinfeld, Fiori, Partners, law firm that represented Clinton during her 2008 presidential campaign.
“To ensure a safe working environment, the campaign had a process to address complaints of misconduct or harassment. When matters arose, they were reviewed in accordance with these policies, and appropriate action was taken,” he said, “This complaint was no exception.”
