Burns Strider, Clinton Campaign Aide

A Hillary Clinton aide was accused of repeated sexual harassment on the 2008 campaign.  Her campaign wanted to fire this aide, and Hillary Clinton refused.  The aid was docked pay and sent to counseling. He kept his job and the woman who accused him was moved to a different role.

This same male aide was brought back into the Clinton fold in 2016.  He was accused of repeated harassment of another women in that year’s losing effort and fired.  Time, it seems, was finally up.

His role in the first campaign was faith adviser.  Seriously.  The Clintons have access to a host of faith advisers.  For whatever reason, Mrs. Clinton chose Burns Strider.  That’s fine.  She then chose to protect him.  That’s not fine.

Is it?
