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

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

Clinton said she believed that the punishment was "severe" and that she also "believes in second chances". He was sacked in 2015, after sexually harassing a number of employees.

"So you could argue that if Hillary had fired him, she would have been protecting many women, instead of just herself", he said. Would he have gotten that next job?

My then-campaign manager presented me with her findings. "But you can bet I'm asking myself these questions right now".

I don't think this is much of a mystery. Yes, back when we didn't know to take sexual harassment seriously, so long ago it seems tendentious to bring it up now, except we're not even saying what "something" is. But something else is happening here that seems odd. The two advisers, after researching the complaint, recommended that he be fired. She added she's glad her campaign had a process for dealing with complaints. At first, Noah defended Clinton for her Grammy Awards appearance, in which she read from Michael Wolff's book on President Donald Trump, called Fire and Fury. A few paragraphs later she returns to the question of what she should have done. What I can't accept is the idea that forgiving Strider means minimizing the consequences he faced for his behavior, especially when doing so put him in a position to offend again.

"Taking away someone's livelihood is perhaps the most serious thing an employer can do", Clinton went on.

She went on to turn on the New York Times in a dazzling display of whataboutism, pointing to the fact that the news organization recently suspended and reinstated a journalist who behaved inappropriately.

Clinton published a lengthy Facebook post minutes before Trump's State of the Union where she said that she wouldn't make the same decision today.

"Over the past year", she writes, "a seismic shift has occurred in the way we approach and respond to sexual harassment, both as a society and as individuals".

Hillary is referring to the NY Times decision to suspend Glenn Thrush. Which will be good enough for her supporters. So why is she now trying to turn this on the NY Times?

She met with Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez at least twice over the previous year to discuss rebuilding the committee and how to best improve infrastructure that was seen as lacking during the 2016 campaign, said a party official who did not want to be identified because they were not authorized to talk about details of Democrats' 2018 plans.

If she really had that big a problem with obnoxious male behavior toward females, she wouldn't be so willing to this day to defend her husband on that score. And men are now on notice that they will truly be held accountable for their actions.

"I hope that women will continue to talk and write about their own experiences and that they will continue leading this critical debate, which, done right, will lead to a better, fairer, safer country for us all", she concluded. Let's do our best to make the most of it.
