Hillary Clinton Protected Campaign Adviser From Sexual Harassment Charges

Former two-time presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is under fire for protecting a 2008 campaign adviser from sexual harassment charges.

At the time of the accusation, Clinton had the man who was accused of the harassment attend counseling and moved him to a different role but she did not fire him.

CBS News reports:

The first time she ran for president in 2008, Hillary Clinton chose to shield her faith adviser on the campaign who was accused of sexually harassing a subordinate, according to the New York Times, citing four people familiar with what took place. Clinton responded Friday night with a tweet saying she was “dismayed” when the incident occured in 2008 and the woman’s “had her concerns taken seriously and addressed.”

Clinton responded to the news about her protecting the former campaign adviser in a Tweet:

 

Clinton is being criticized for being a hypocrite regarding women’s rights.

Clinton poses as a champion of women but she fails to back women who come forward with claims of sexual harassment and abuse.

After the news broke about Clinton protecting the campaign worker, a video of her appeared on Twitter thanking women for their¬†feminism and activism.¬† After her initial statement, she repeats a comment made by someone else describing the women activists as “activist bitches.”
