    Hillary Clinton resisted her campaign manager's call to fire an aide accused of sexual harassment during her 2008 campaign, opting for administrative sanctions, NBC News has confirmed.

    The aide, Burns Strider, was accused of rubbing the shoulders of a 30-year-old female subordinate, kissing her on the forehead and sending her suggestive emails, The New York Times first reported Friday.

    According to The Times, he was sent to counseling and docked pay, while his subordinate was reassigned on the campaign. Another member of Clinton's 2008 campaign staff confirmed the details to NBC News in a series of text messages.

    Clinton on Twitter Friday night said "A story appeared today about something that happened in 2008. I was dismayed when it occurred, but was heartened the young woman came forward, was heard, and had her concerns taken seriously and addressed."
