NYT: Clinton Kept Alleged Sexual Harasser on Campaign Staff

A senior advisor on Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign was accused of sexual harassment and kept on staff at Clinton’s request, four sources told The New York Times. Burns Strider was “repeatedly sexually harassing a young subordinate,” and Clinton was recommended to fire Strider by her campaign manager. Instead, Strider received a pay cut and was told to undergo counseling while the woman was “moved to a new job.” Strider was Clinton’s “faith adviser” and also led Correct the Record, an independent group that supported Clinton’s 2016 run. He was also fired from the group “for workplace issues, including allegations that he harassed a young female aide.” A statement from the law firm involved in the 2008 sexual harassment issues claimed that “appropriate action was taken.”
