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.

Hillary Clinton re-assigned a female staffer after she accused a top advisor of sexual harassment in 2008 – the advisor, Burns Strider, was brought back in 2016 to lead a pro-Clinton PAC but subsequently got fired after more workplace issues came up

In 2008, a young staffer working for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign accused top advisor, Burns Strider, of repeated sexual harassment. The complaint initially was reported to national director of operations, Jess O’Connell, who then brought it to the attention of campaign manager, Solis Doyle, with the recommendation that Burns get fired from the campaign. Doyle took on that advice up to Hillary Clinton, who relented on the firing and instead ordered Strider to undergo counseling and dock several weeks of pay. The female staffer was moved to a new job and no longer had to report up to Strider.

Burns Strider was the faith advisor for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign and a co-founder of the progressive Christian lobbying firm, American Values Network. Strider got hired on again in the 2016 Election to lead the PAC, Correct the Record, created by political operative David Brock for opposition research.

Burns Strider subsequently got fired from Correct the Record after several months when more workplace issues came up including an allegation that he harassed a young female aide.

Melania Trump’s spokeswoman says MeToo! … in decrying FakeNews

Melania Trump’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, has hit back on reports that Moo is estranged from her husband after cancelling a planned trip to Davos, where the reason given was “scheduling and logistical issues”.

Moo instead flew to West Palm Beach, Florida on an unannounced trip amidst reports that Donald Trump had a nearly year long affair with porn star, Stormy Daniels, months after she had given birth to their son. 

DailyMail reported that Moo has been “spending time away from Trump and the White House” and staying at a DC hotel. Well, let’s all hope that Moo is picking up her own tabs and not charging them off to taxpayers – though given Moo’s track record as a welfare case and all-around moocher, highly doubt it.

WSJ reports that a manicurist, who worked on-site for Wynn Las Vegas in 2005, was raped by Steve Wynn in his office after being pressured to disrobe and have sex with him. The woman reported the incident to her supervisor, who then filed a report with the casino resort’s HR department. The case was settled for $7.5Million.

WSJ has interviewed “dozens of people” who recounted a “decades long” pattern of sexual abuse/assault/harassment against Steve Wynn. In a written statement, Wynn responded that, “The idea that I ever assaulted any woman is preposterous.”

Steve Wynn casino empire includes 2 casinos in Macau, where the economy is based on casinos, drugs, and prostitution, and he is currently building a $2.4Billion Wynn casino in the Boston area.
