The former leader of Hillary Clinton’s failed 2008 campaign for President says Hillary helped a campaign adviser keep his job despite multiple reports of sexual harassment, personally overruling her recommendation to fire him.
Don’t expect to hear this from the liberal media! Hillary is a “champion” for women, after all.
According to Politico:
“Hillary Clinton personally “overruled” a recommendation that she fire a top campaign staffer accused of sexual harassment in 2008, her campaign manager at the time said Monday.
Patti Solis Doyle, who headed Clinton’s presidential bid when a young female staffer accused senior adviser Burns Strider of repeatedly sexually harassing her, told CNN she urged Clinton to dismiss Strider, but the Democratic candidate rejected the recommendation.
“I was overruled,” Solis Doyle said in her first public remarks since news of the harassment controversy was reported by The New York Times on Friday.
Strider, according to the Times, was kept on the campaign at Clinton’s behest despite the allegations of misconduct. The Clinton faith adviser was docked several weeks’ pay and told to undergo counseling in response, the Times reports. Strider went on to lead an independent organization that backed Clinton’s candidacy in 2016.”
