    "Clinton’s former faith outreach adviser has been accused of repeatedly sexually harassing a woman in Clinton’s 2008 campaign for president, according to a report last week from the New York Times. Clinton reportedly decided not to fire Burns Strider, who led her religious outreach efforts, against the advice of her campaign manager."

    "Strider led an independent group that supported Clinton’s 2016 candidacy called Correct the Record....[where there were again] allegations that he harassed a young female aide, according to the Times’s report."

    "Strider, a gregarious Southern Baptist, emailed Clinton daily Bible readings every morning...and served as a liaison of sorts to religious groups."

    "He served a pastoral-like role, praying with her and for her."

    "Politico in 2014 described Strider as 'a Hillary Clinton favorite,' and he is listed in her acknowledgements in her post-election book 'What Happened.'"

    "People close to Strider say he was a key adviser to Clinton, and he would often be the go-between setting up conversations with faith leaders like megachurch pastor Rick Warren’s wife, Kay Warren"


    Hillary has struck back at the accusations against her, tweeting that it was "something that happened in 2008."

    "'For most of my life, harassment wasn’t something talked about or even acknowledged,' Clinton wrote....'until recently, the response was often to laugh it off or tough it out.'"

    "'I also believe in second chances. I’ve been given second chances and I have given them to others.'"

    The guy was a Southern Baptist hypocrite. She should have stuck with a Methodist.

    Burns Strider? Is it just me, or does it sound like his parents picked his name out of a random word generator.
