Clinton protected top adviser accused of harassment during 2008 campaign: report



WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) - During the 2008 White House race, a senior adviser to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign was accused of sexually harassing a subordinate but the adviser was kept on staff, according to The New York Times.

The report also stated that it was Clinton's campaign manager at the time that recommended that she fire the adviser, Burns Strider, but she did not.

Strider was reportedly docked pay for a number of weeks and was required to attend counseling sessions.

Strider was then hired five years later to lead Correct the Record, an independent group supporting Clinton's 2016 presidential bid.

Correct the Record was created by David Brock, a close Clinton ally, and Strider was ultimately fired from the organization after several months for workplace issues.

Three people close to Correct the Record's management told The Times that the issues included allegations that Strider harrassed a young female aide.

The complaint against Strider made during Clinton's 2008 bid were made by a 30-year-old woman who shared an office with him at the time.

Three former campaign officials said the women told one official Strider rubbed her shoulders inappropriately, kissed her on the forehead and sent her a string of suggestive emails, including at least one sent at night.
