Hillary Clinton chose not to fire Burns Strider, the faith adviser on her 2008 presidential campaign, despite allegations of sexual harassment against a younger staffer, reports the NYTimes.

Why it matters: Strider was docked a few weeks pay and ordered to undergo counseling, despite a recommendation from Clinton's campaign manager that he be fired. He went on to work for a Clinton super PAC that supported her candidacy in 2016, but was fired for workplace issues that again included the harassment of a young female aide.
