Me Maybe Not. Hillary puts out mild response on not firing top advisor accused of sexual harassment

Hillary Clinton responded via Twitter to a NYTimes report that she shielded faith adviser, Burns Strider, from getting fired after he was accused of sexual harassment. She started by pointing out that the incident was “something that happened in 2008” and went on to say that she was “dismayed when it occurred”.

Hillary also followed up the next tweet to say that she reached out to the female staffer and let her know “how proud I am of her”. 

No mentions were made as to why she didn’t fire Burns Strider at the time, or why he was allowed to return back to the campaign without completing any counseling.

Also, no comments were made regarding the 2016 incident where Burns Striders subsequently got fired from a pro-Clinton PAC, Correct the Action, after several months of workplace issues including another allegation of sexual harassment by a female aide working there.
