Hillary fought to keep pervy adviser on staff

Hillary Clinton reportedly refused to fire a top adviser who was accused of sexual harassment during her 2008 campaign

Oh my: NYT accuses Hillary of shielding aide accused of sexual harassment

A bombshell report from the New York Times reveals former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton shielded a top staffer after repeated accusations of sexual harassment from a young subordinate, adding the campaign kept him on staff at Hillary's "request".

Burns Strider, Clinton's faith adviser, was accused of harassing a younger female aide.

Clinton's 2008 campaign manager, Patti Solis Doyle, reportedly recommended Clinton fire him.

Clinton's legal representatives did not deny the harassment allegations or reporting that Clinton rejected the advice of her campaign manager in their statement to The Times. Five years after the campaign, he was selected to lead Correct the Record, an independent pro-Clinton group, and was sacked after allegations that he sexually harassed a young female staffer there. He was later fired from his role after several months over "workplace issues", including harassing a young female aide, the Times reported.

A spokesman for Pelosi did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment on Strider's behavior during the time working in her office.

"At the point when matters emerged, they were surveyed as per these approaches, and fitting move was made", peruses the announcement sent by firm Utrecht, Kleinfeld, Fiori, Partners - which spoke to the battle in 2008 - to the Times. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Clinton's 2016 presidential campaigns came forward to say they faced sexual harassment from fellow campaign workers. "This complaint was no exception".

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Strider worked with the Clinton-supporting organization Correct the Record. She remains unnamed due to having signed an NDA.

Less than a month later, in December 2017, celebrity Clinton surrogate Lena Dunham disclosed that she tried to warn the Clinton campaign about Weinstein's toxicity at least a year earlier. Clinton said she did not want to, and instead he remained on her staff. That night he got a call from Bill Clinton, who extolled the virtues of his new animal-free diet: "If I can do it, you can".

In other words, why was she seen as an inspiration for this movement?

The politician was known to be a friend of Harvey Weinstein, but said she was "shocked and appalled" by the allegations surrounding the film producer. "As to claims about a warning, that's something staff wouldn't forget", he said.
