Ex-Campaign Manager Says Hillary Clinton Protected Adviser Accused Of Sexual Harassment

Hillary Clinton turned out not to be the feminist savior liberals all wanted her to be in the 2016 election, and now more details have emerged about her protecting a senior adviser accused of sexual harassment on her 2008 campaign.

Burns Strider, who was ironically Clinton’s faith adviser on her 2008 campaign, was accused of sexual harassment by a young female staffer. According to two sources, Strider’s behavior included inappropriate touching, kissing the staffer’s forehead, and sending her suggestive emails. However, rather then terminate Strider the staffer reassigned. Strider was allowed to remain in his role, where he continued to harass young women.

On Friday, Clinton attempted to remedy the situation by tweeting that she’d called the staffer in question to “tell her how proud I am of her and to make sure she knows what all women should: we deserve to be heard.”

Unsurprisingly, Clinton didn’t bother to take any responsibility for her part in shielding an accused sexual harasser, including going against the recommendation of her campaign manager.

Patti Solis Doyle, Clinton’s campaign manager for her 2008 campaign, told CNN’s Brianna Keilar on Monday that she recommended Clinton fire Strider – but Clinton “overruled” Doyle’s advice.

“She overruled you personally?” Keilar asked. To which Doyle confirmed, “I was overruled, yes.”

Doyle also expressed disappointment at Clinton’s response to the story. “I was disappointed by that tweet, that response,” she said. “It was the wrong call [not to fire Strider]. I wish she had said it was the wrong call.”

Hillary Clinton made a hypocritical mistake not to fire Strider after multiple people came forward to accuse him of harassment. She should take responsibility for her actions, but the sad reality is she likely never will.
