Hillary Clinton Chose to Shield a Top Adviser Accused of Harassment in 2008

posted on January 26, 2018

The New York Times‘ Maggie Haberman and Amy Chozick report that Burns Strider, a top Hillary Clinton aide, was accused of sexual harassment during the 2008 and 2016 campaigns. They write, “Mr. Strider, who was Mrs. Clinton’s faith adviser, a co-founder of the American Values Network, and sent the candidate scripture readings every morning for months during the campaign, was hired five years later to lead an independent group that supported Mrs. Clinton’s 2016 candidacy, Correct the Record, which was created by a close Clinton ally, David Brock.” In 2008, they report that Clinton kept him on the campaign despite the allegations. In 2016, they write, “He was fired after several months for workplace issues, including allegations that he harassed a young female aide, according to three people close to Correct the Record’s management.”
