A top liberal think tank led by a Hillary Clinton ally has reportedly faced multiple internal allegations of sexual harassment, amid claims from former and current employees that top brass at the organization havent done enough to address it.
BuzzFeed News reported Tuesday that the Center for American Progress, led by ex-Clinton adviser Neera Tanden and founded by former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, has a history of sexual harassment claims. BuzzFeed obtained documents from 2016 that reportedly suggested a chaotic internal culture and pointed to several incidents of sexual harassment against several members.
One document was an exit memo from a junior staffer who had reportedly just quit after allegedly facing sexually harassment by a manager, Benton Strong. The exit memo, sent to top leadership of the organization and obtained by BuzzFeed, stated that on several occasions, myself and others on the team felt as if reporting [sexual harassment] had been a mistake and that the retaliation, worsening of already tenuous team dynamics, and treatment by supervisors outweighed the seemingly positive act of reporting sexual harassment in the workplace.
Two women reportedly filed complaints against Strong in 2016. Strong allegedly asked several women on his team if they had been flashed or masturbated in front of, and allegedly sent sexually explicit text messages to another.
In the junior staffers exit memo, she also described receiving lewd and inappropriate text messages from Strong, which made her feel uncomfortable in the workplace.
A separate July 2016 memo reportedly written by CAPs employee union, but never delivered to Tanden, detailed the organizations failures in regard to sexual harassment policy.

How out-of-touch must a guy be to act like that Benton Strong?! I don’t know ANY guy that would act so crudely! And then to actually think that it is okay?! That guy is not only a pervert, he is totally stupid. And I bet that he thinks that women dig him! What a maroon! And the ultra-liberal Center for American Progress just let him continue to harass women. Wow! Their ethics are as bad as Hillary’s.
How can that be? The name Clinton and sexual harassment are not things that the MSM say belong together.
No more out-of-touch than that stupid liberal moron Caren Z. Turner, who tried to play "do you know who I am" with two New Jersey cops, in front of their dash cams and body cams.
I hear the two cops now know exactly who she is.
She "resigned" HAHAHA!
You should have expected it .... you worked in a Progressive Sh!thole with scum sucking dogs sh!tting over your fellow Americans ... you expected nice?
