Hillary Clinton's response to report of harassment disappointing: Patti Solis Doyle

Posted January 31, 2018

Specifically, she questioned why he was targeted over President Donald Trump (accused of sexual assault, harassment and misconduct), failing to realize that accountability is not an either or. He returned to work on Tuesday to cover "the social safety net in the age of Trump", according to the newspaper.

"For most of my life, harassment wasn't something talked about or even acknowledged", Clinton wrote. "That's changing, and that's a good thing". "Whatever, you had two people, including your campaign manager, come to you and said this person has to go". The most serious accusation was brought by Juanita Broaddrick, who alleges that in 1978, Clinton raped her when he was Arkansas attorney general.

Quote: The complaint against Mr. Strider was made by a 30-year-old woman who shared an office with him. The alleged harassment by Strider included inappropriate touching, kissing and sending suggestive emails.

The Times reports that the complaint was taken to Clinton's campaign manager at the time, who suggested Strider be fired.

Clinton also took aim at the Times itself, calling out the paper for its decision to reinstate reporter Glenn Thrush following a brief suspension after similar misconduct allegations were made against him late previous year. The woman has not spoken herself, perhaps in part because, as the Times reports, she signed a nondisclosure agreement with the campaign. "Firing a high-profile person on the campaign would have certainly made news and caused a distraction".

The New York Times first reported the story last Friday and Clinton responded with a tweet late Friday night saying that she had been "dismayed" to learn of the allegations against Strider in 2008, but that she believed the woman's concerns had been " taken seriously and addressed".

She refused to apologize for keeping Strider on, but did say that if she had to do it again, she "wouldn't".

"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", Clinton tweeted.

Strider, raised a Southern Baptist in the Mississippi Delta, previously served as policy director for the House Democratic Caucus and did "faith outreach" for the House Democratic Caucus under then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. "Let's do our best to make the most of it".

"Better than a Friday news dump", Brent Scher of the Washington Free Beacon wrote on Twitter, referring to the frequent practice during the Clinton administration of releasing embarrassing information on Friday evening to minimize its impact on the pre-internet news cycle. "She has outsourced her own decision-making, it seems, to discussions of process and policies - the same anonymous structures that so many other managers have relied on for legal, and moral, insulation". "It occurred thanks to women across industries who stood up and spoke out, from Hollywood to sports to farm workers ― to the very woman who worked for me".

The other source said Clinton made clear that "we should explore other options" than firing Strider.

"Look, there's a few areas that I don't necessarily expect Hillary Clinton to nail it", Noah began. "I believed the punishment was severe and the message to him unambiguous".
