Another week, another scandal for former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
This time, Clinton is smack-dab in the middle of a sexual harassment controversy… again.
And it’s all part of a larger, ugly secret that Clinton has been keeping from her millions of followers since she entered the national political spotlight 26 years ago.
Americans were outraged when news surfaced recently that Clinton failed to protect a staffer from sexual harassment during her failed 2008 presidential campaign.
A female staff member was allegedly repeated harassed by Clinton’s “faith adviser,” Burns Strider, during the 2008 campaign. Despite recommendations from top campaign officials to fire Strider, Clinton personally intervened and kept him on the job – and reassigned the staffer instead.
Strider then apparently sexually harassed more women at his next employer, a liberal special interest group.
Clinton’s direct failure to protect a sexually harassed woman… and to stop Strider from preying on more women… wasn’t an accident.
It’s the latest evidence of a well-known secret that Clinton’s devotees should have figured out a long time ago.
Hillary Clinton is NO feminist. If Clinton were on trial for being a feminist, there wouldn’t be enough evidence to convict her.
Despite Clinton’s rhetoric, it’s hard to pinpoint anything concrete she’s done for women, other than pay them lip service.
Part of the reason is that, when she was serving as a Senator from New York and was in a position to influence domestic policy, Clinton accomplished very little.
In eight years as Senator, Clinton was lead sponsor on only three bills that became law – and two of them involved naming New York landmarks after men.
Her time as Secretary of State was also marred by the Clinton Foundation’s continued pattern of accepting cash from governments that brutally repress women, like Saudi Arabia.
While Clinton hasn’t been much of a champion for women, she’s done some women irreparable harm.
She’s repeatedly dismissed alleged victims of her husband, former President Bill Clinton, even referring to them as a “bimbo eruption.”
When asked on the 2016 campaign trail whether her husband’s victims deserved to be believed, Clinton refused to say they do.
That probably wasn’t a very good day for women who have been sexually harassed or abused.
Juanita Broaddrick, who accused Bill Clinton of raping her in 1978, even claims Hillary Clinton threatened her.
"Hillary Clinton's been calling me a bimbo for 19 years,” added Kathleen Willey, who accused Bill Clinton of sexual harassment.
That doesn’t sound like something a feminist would do.
But Hillary Clinton is no feminist.
It’s been the worst-kept secret for 26 years… and it’s time America finally accepted it.
