Hillary Clinton’s Catch-22: Refused to Fire Male Campaign Faith Advisor Accused of Sexual Harassment

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 12:57 pm

[Guest post by Dana]

Although she has been referred to as the inspiration for the #MeToo movement and is the self-proclaimed champion of women holding an iconic position in the feminist movement, it turns out that Hillary Clinton is little more than a garden-variety hypocrite, and far less an inspiration and champion of women than her claims as a presidential candidate would have led us to believe. This is not really anything that we did not already know; however, a new report really drives it home:

A senior [faith] adviser to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign who was accused of repeatedly sexually harassing a young subordinate was kept on the campaign at Mrs. Clinton’s request, according to four people familiar with what took place.

Mrs. Clinton’s campaign manager at the time recommended that she fire the adviser, Burns Strider. But Mrs. Clinton did not. Instead, Mr. Strider was docked several weeks of pay and ordered to undergo counseling, and the young woman was moved to a new job.

Here are the particulars:

The complaint against Mr. Strider was made by a 30-year-old woman who shared an office with him. She told a campaign official that Mr. Strider had rubbed her shoulders inappropriately, kissed her on the forehead and sent her a string of suggestive emails, including at least one during the night, according to three former campaign officials familiar with what took place.

The complaint was taken to Ms. Doyle, the campaign manager, who approached Mrs. Clinton and urged that Mr. Strider, who was married at the time, be fired, according to the officials familiar with what took place. Mrs. Clinton said she did not want to, and instead he remained on her staff.

Note: Strider sent the Hillary Clinton scripture readings every morning during the campaign so that the candidate could start her day focused on the things of God, and one assumes that Strider, her spiritual advisor, could lead her to a deeper, more meaningful experience in the faith during a stressful season of campaigning. Ha!

Here is an overview of the complaint made against Strider, whom she did not want to fire for said behavior against a young female employee:

The complaint against Mr. Strider was made by a 30-year-old woman who shared an office with him. She told a campaign official that Mr. Strider had rubbed her shoulders inappropriately, kissed her on the forehead and sent her a string of suggestive emails, including at least one during the night, according to three former campaign officials familiar with what took place.

This is the behavior that Hillary Clinton — Champion of Women and inspiration for the #MeToo movement — believed was negligible. An employee who was her “faith” advisor, as well as an alleged sexual harasser whom she protected. Unsurprisingly, Strider was later hired by longtime Clinton supporter David Brock for her next campaign run, and was fired within several months when another complaint of sexual harassment was made against him by a female employee.

Clinton responded to this report with typical obfuscations and distractions, once again demonstrating that she believes people – especially women – are just dumb and easily manipulated:

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.

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.

This is not the response of an empowered woman equipped to break glass ceilings and effect any real change. This is simply the response of a deceptive individual who manipulates in order to push away any personal accountability. The only surprising thing about her response is that she did not blame this on a vast right-wing conspiracy.

While I believe Hillary Clinton to be irrelevant and residing in the trash heap of politics, it’s good to have her baked-in hypocrisy exposed yet again. Amusingly, no matter where her political path may lead in the future, she will forever, and I assume frustratingly, remain hamstrung by the bad behavior of her own sexually harassing husband. It’s her ever-present Catch-22, if you will:

Granted, Clinton is in an exquisitely awkward place when it comes to determining how to punish sexual harassment in the workplace. You don’t need me to explain why. But it is possible to imagine her thinking process: If I can this guy for doing way less than my own husband did with a subordinate in his workplace, how’s that going to look? Well, Clinton erred in the other direction, and that’s not looking so good now, is it?

Poor Hillary.

  1. It is common for people who commit mild, non-violent sexual harassment to receive counseling and keep their job if they cease the inappropriate behavior. In fact, that is the desired outcome, when it is possible.

  4. He was too important (for publicity – he gave Hillary religious cover and there weren’t too many loyal relgious hypocrites around) to fire. So Hillary agreed he would go to counseling (this never happened becase Patti Solis Doylke was fired opretty soon because she lost the Iowa caucus) The woman who complained was moved out to an equivalent position.
    She hasn’t said anything since she signed a non-disclosure agreement (like all people who worked for Hillary’s 2008 capaign)

    The man later went to work fro David Brock’s outfit “Correct the Record.” There he did it again but this time he was not too useful to fire.

  84. She was by no means perfect in making policy decisions. After all, she believed Dick Cheney when he told her that Saddam Hussein had developed weapons of mass destruction, and that led her to vote for the second Iraq war. She learned from that experience, and her future carefulness will keep her from making that kind of mistake again. She was, however, honest enough to admit that she regretted her vote, and honesty is something we need in Washington.

    As secretary of state, Hillary demonstrated her ability to negotiate foreign policy. She joined the two female secretaries of state who held that position previously and — as those on both sides of the political aisle will admit — were outstanding voices representing America’s interests around the world.

    Clinton modeled being a faithful wife and a loving, effective mother at a time when we needed such a model. Many people thought, in the midst of a crisis that would have destroyed most marriages, she showed that the promises she made to her husband on their wedding day were binding through better and worse, that she really meant it. We need a president who keeps her promises.

  102. Another beautiful morning in Jenkintown, PA as I watch the comrades head start the day with an anti Trump explosion. Poof! Winning!.

    I always try to guess which essence of truth publication the newest piece of bullsh!t will come from: The Guardian, GQ, Salon, the NYT, Esquire, Vox or the American Pravda: Huffpo. Today’s honor went to the Guardian.

    Rev.Hoagie (6bbda7)

  103. Its just awful of the Guardian rubbing your noses in Ken Starrs words.

    Ben burn (b3d5ab)

  104. That didn’t take you long, comrade.

    Rev.Hoagie (6bbda7)

  105. Good lord, Hoagie probably could sue the creators of This is Us AND The Goldbergs.

  106. calling anybody else the “lowest of the low” is a completely unself-aware thing for a california unionthug teacherpig to do

    Doesn’t that depend on what the meaning of “went” is, Hoagie?

  109. 114.Good lord, Hoagie probably could sue the creators of This is Us AND The Goldbergs.

    I actually know the people they refer to in The Goldberg’s, urbanleftbehind. The Goldberg’s who own the furniture company are really the Gamberg’s. Kremp, the flower shop is a friend and I always use them. They got most of the area down to a T. The Chinese restaurant, China Garden is my favorite and the owner June is a friend also. Although in one episode the JTP was in front of what was supposed to be a 7-11 store but it had “Liquors” on the front and anybody who knows PA knows we have state stores and 7-11 can’t sell alcohol.

    Rev.Hoagie (6bbda7)

  110. Nice of the Grammys to take a night off from #MeToo to honor a serial enabler of sexual predators.

    I guess America needed to be reminded why she lost.

  113. 116.. That is funny, comrade. They actually did not say how this phony baloney “suppression” was to occur. By requiring only Americans vote? What you call suppression honest people call fair elections. Funny how you guys deny any and all voter fraud but find any effort to keep the vote from becoming fraudulent “suppression”. In Philly the last time Hussein ran we had districts that reported 105% or more of registered voters voted for him. If a district has 500 registered voters and 525 votes are registered (all for Hussein) is there voter fraud? And if an effort is made to stop that abuse is that suppression? I’m sure you would believe so.

  114. The state liquor stores of Ohio were quaint (mid-90s), but my biggest takeaway was that is the Columbus area’s Big Bear (now Giant Eagle) groceries were the first grocery stores I encountered with the walk-in liquor freezer room.

  118. There must be a word for the type of symbiotic relationship in which two loathsome people each depend entirely on their comparison to the other for their popularity.

  120. You don’t know for sure.

    We might also see and hear ad nauseam from actors and other celebrities expressing desires to beat him to a pulp, or hang him, or shoot him—all the insidious efforts not of those easily disregarded as unhinged, but of those with public personas, and with the effect of incrementally normalizing violence against the president. Late night comedians might vie with each other in their profanity and scatology, ridiculing the president with references to him fellating a foreign leader.

  122. People think that the 21st Amendment made alcohol legal because it repealed the 18th. Nope. What it did was make America dry by default. You can drink only if the government says you can and only the way the government says you can.

  125. “Sources close to Lorde tell us … the singer decided not to play after a heated back and forth with the Grammys about her involvement in the show. We’re told Lorde wanted to perform one of her songs from her nominated album, but she was only offered the option to sing as part of a Tom Petty tribute … during the late rocker’s tune, “American Girl.”

    The 2 sides couldn’t come to an agreement … so Lorde pulled the plug on performing altogether and we’re told she won’t be on the Red Carpet either.

    It’s interesting — our sources say the other 4 nominees, all men, got offers to perform their own tracks solo, and while Jay-Z declined … the other 3 nominees — Bruno Mars, Childish Gambino and Kendrick Lamar — are all slated to perform.”

    So they wouldn’t allow the lone female nominee to sing one her own songs, but they made time for Granny Enabler to read from The Sour Grapes Handbook?

    Irony set on 11

  126. Trump still dragging feet on new sanctions…why?

    A series of laws in Magnitsky’s name have been enacted all over the world, imposing sanctions on Russians accused of corruption or complicity in the death of Magnitsky and the subsequent coverup. President Barack Obama signed the U.S. Magnitsky Act in 2012.

  129. Swe-e-e-e-t

    Experts say the reason isn’t price gouging by Boeing, which makes the jets and handles the presidential modifications, but instead the result of bespoke equipment requirements put in place by the White House Military Office and the Air Force.

  136. “For all the talk about being a good Christian, Governor Mike Huckabee has some vicious barbs in his back pocket that he’s not afraid to use.”

    Good Christians are supposed to exist in small numbers because the Path is difficult. You can’t get to Heaven by back-sliding.

    Veselnitskaya, wasn’t she the Russian who hired FusionGPS (the epicenter of the Russian dossier fantasy), ostensibly to lobby on behalf of Putin and the oligarchs against the Magnitsky act?

    No, that couldn’t be….FusionGPS never registered as a foreign agent and never lobbied, just paid reporters and media outlets to run stories they wrote. Journalisming at its finest.

  142. http://www.newser.com/story/254687/clinton-trolls-trump-in-surprise-grammys-cameo.html

    Hillary Clinton appeared on the Grammy awards show.

    This was a pre-recorded segment where half a dozen people pretended to audition to read the audiobook version of Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

    http://www.newser.com/story/254687/clinton-trolls-trump-in-surprise-grammys-cameo.html
    Cher, Cardi B, and Snoop Dogg also did auditions.

    Hillary Clinton comes last. The part she chose to read goes:

    “He had a longtime fear of being poisoned. One reason why he likes to eat at McDonald’s. Nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely pre-made.”

    At that, ” Corden shouts:

    “That’s it! We’ve got it!”

    Hillary actually does not sound good. But they both agree that next year’s Grammy is in the bag.

  143. it opened with something that would have appeared strange in cb 4, the hiphop version of spinal tap, back when chris rock still pretended to be funny,

  144. It just occured to me, Hillary really is more aligned sympathetically with men than with feminists. Her natural followers would be wearing penis hats. Bill, Anthony, Burns. She has a type, and it’s called horndog.

    Possibly why she comes off as false even on the odd occasion when she is telling the truth.

    “I’m not just tammy wynette standing by my man” – remember how natural she came off in that speech?
