Clinton Issues Statement Explaining Why She Shielded Sexual Harasser in 2008

#MeToo meets #ItsAllAboutMe Hillary Clinton | Opinion
But days later, only fifteen minutes before Donald Trump's State of the Union address was set to be delivered, Clinton suddenly posted a 1,500-word essay on her Facebook page explaining why she didn't fire Strider and expressing regret for the decision.
Clinton also said that if she had to do it all over again, she would have made a different choice, writing "If I had it to do again, I wouldn't".
A female campaign staffer had accused Clinton's faith adviser, Burns Strider, of harassment that included inappropriate touching, kissing her forehead and sending her suggestive emails, the sources said.
Clinton's initial response to the New York Times story was to deploy the law firm that represented her 2008 campaign, Utrecht, Kleinfeld, Fiori, Partners, to issue a statement that simply claimed the campaign's policies were followed. And when I defended Clinton from the charges that she should have done something more to prevent her husband's transgressions, I did so out of a belief that women have the right to complicated reactions in private as long as they behave with integrity in public.
The former candidate also writes that the report of harassment by Strider at Correct the Record "troubles me greatly". "I wish she had said it was the wrong call".
"Mrs. Clinton's campaign manager at the time recommended that she fire the adviser, Burns Strider, but Mrs. Clinton did not". Mr Strider was sacked a year ago from his position with Correct the Record, an independent group supporting Ms Clinton's 2016 campaign, after further allegations of sexual harassment.
"It feels like Hillary's not only trying to dodge all the blame, she wants to present herself as having always been on this woman's side, which doesn't fly", he concluded.
Following the NY Times report, Clinton had said she was "dismayed" by the sexual harassment accusations and that the situation had been "taken seriously and addressed" when he worked for her.
Clinton says that she reassigned the female staffer to work directly for her deputy campaign manager, and that the staffer "flourished in her new role".
Patti Solis Doyle, Ms Clinton's former campaign manager, also spoke out about her version of events last week. "I believed the punishment was severe and the message to him unambiguous".
It's true that during her decades in public life, Clinton has been unfairly saddled with the weight of a lot of bad decision-making by men. "I wanted to make sure that other women, and men for that matter, could feel comfortable and free to speak up if something were to happen to them, if there were another incident".
The two cases where Strider's inappropriate conduct was exposed in greatest detail demonstrate how his consistent sexual harassment was tolerated day-in and day-out under his boss, Clinton. You know, weaknesses. But I won't lie: I expected standing up for a woman on her staff to be one of her strengths.
