Clinton Says She Spoke to Staffer Who Accused Top Adviser of Harassment


Hillary Clinton responded on Friday to a New York Times report that she kept a top adviser on her 2008 campaign after he was accused of sexual harassment by another campaign staffer.

In a pair of tweets, Clinton said that she was “dismayed” when she was made aware of the allegations against her then-senior faith adviser, Burns Strider, but was “heartened” that his accuser came forward.

Clinton said that “the young woman came forward, was heard, and had her concerns taken seriously and addressed.” The former Democratic presidential candidate also noted that she called Strider’s accuser on Friday to tell her that she is “proud” of her.
