Sexual harassment claims

During Hillary Clinton's first run for President in 2008, female staffer on her campaign reportedly filed a complaint alleging that one of Clinton's senior advisers, Burns Strider, repeatedly sexually harassed her. According to a New York Times report on Friday, Clinton's campaign manager recommended that she dismiss Strider, but she decided to keep him on her campaign with pay dock and in order to undergo counseling, while moving female staffer to a different position. Strider did not return The Times ' request for comment, and a statement from a law firm representing the Clinton campaign in 2008 noted that appropriate action was take. Bustle has reached out to Strider for comment via his political consulting firm Eleison Group. Strider worked on the 2008 campaign as Clinton's faith adviser. Cofounder of American Values Network, he's also worked on over 100 political campaigns. According to his Eleison Group bio, Strider is known as 'faith and values' guru for the Democratic Party. The New York Times interviewed eight former campaign officials and Clinton associates to gather facts and details of the story. Those sources say that a 30-year-old woman working in campaign office alongside Strider reported that he kissed her on the forehead, rubbed her shoulders, and sent suggestive emails to her. Woman told Clinton's campaign manager, Patti Solis Doyle, of Strider's behavior. And according to Times sources, Doyle discussed the situation with Clinton, and recommended that Strider be fired from the campaign. Instead, Clinton opted to move the female staffer to a different position, temporarily dock Strider's campaign salary, and order him to attend counseling. The Times notes that a woman has never spoken out about her experience. As is common in political campaigns, she signed a nondisclosure agreement that prevents her and other campaign staffers from publicly discussing inner workings and experiences of the campaign itself. Doyle do not provide the Times with any comment. Some of those interviewed report being troubled by the fact that Strider was keep on campaign. Strider was also hired during Clinton's 2016 campaign, to lead the independent Group Correct Record. He was fired from that position after a few months on job for workplace issues. One of those issues was allegation that he had sexually harassed a young female staffer. Report emerge in environment much more amenable to women's stories of sexual harassment, following the months-long MeToo movement. Clinton faced criticism during her 2016 campaign on the feminist front, including how she had handled allegations from several women against her husband. Some Democrats struggle to defend Clinton's past comments and actions towards women, particularly those who had come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against Bill Clinton. For many would-be supporters, emergence of then-candidate Donald Trump as her opponent required firm offense on the topic of sexual harassment and assault. But Clinton's past support of her husband sometimes seem to hamper her ability to aggressively take Trump on over issue.
