Read Hillary’s PATHETIC Excuse After She Covered Up for a Staffer Who Sexually Harassed Women

Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton has responded to allegations that she allowed an adviser to stay on her campaign staff, even after he was accused of sexual harassment. However, her explanation seems to contradict what everyone else involved seems to be saying.

The former presidential candidate issued a statement in two tweets about the incident, which has rattled her supporters. After building a campaign around the treatment of women and championing equality, her alleged actions to protect her former adviser are rubbing many the wrong way.

Yesterday, we reported on the alleged cover-up, which was detailed by The Daily Caller.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton allegedly retained a top adviser on her 2008 presidential campaign even after she learned that he was accused of sexual harassment.

Four sources told The New York Times that Burns Strider, who served as Clinton’s faith adviser, was accused of repeatedly sexually harassing a young staffer.

Clinton’s campaign manager at the time, Patti Solis Doyle, requested that Clinton fire Strider, but instead Clinton insisted that he he undergo counseling and lose several weeks of pay. The young woman was reassigned and forced to sign a nondisclosure agreement.

The 30-year-old woman accused Strider of rubbing her shoulders in an inappropriate manner, kissing her on the forehead and sending her suggestive emails.

Clinton has responded via Twitter, claiming that she did address the situation at the time, and things were handled appropriately. She does not explain why she kept Strider on staff after the allegations surfaced.

The New York Post reports on Clinton’s response.

Hillary Clinton responded to a story that said her 2008 faith outreach adviser was accused of sexual harassment — claiming the victim’s concerns were “taken seriously and addressed” at the time.

“A story appeared today about something that happened in 2008. I was dismayed when it occurred, but was heartened the young woman came forward, was heard, and had her concerns taken seriously and addressed,” Clinton tweeted late Friday.

“I called her today to tell her how proud I am of her and to make sure she knows what all women should: we deserve to be heard.”

The New York Times story published Friday claimed that Clinton had shielded the adviser, Burns Strider, after her campaign manager recommended he be fired.

Strider had allegedly sexually harassed a female staffer he had shared an office with.
