What is going on in the mind of a man given a village to shepherd who goes out of his way to aid and abet a serial male chauvinist porcine governor who lied about the people his policies killed with covid19? It was illegal, unnecessary, and did nothing to advance the cause of human rights for anyone in the USA. Most importantly, Alphonso David places the organization in jeopardy at a time when LGBTQIA+ civil rights are under attack.

From the article:
"Alphonso David was fired from his role as president of Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Monday night, just a month after the board had elected to extend his contract as leader of the powerful advocacy group—and the largest LGBTQ civil rights organization in the world—for five years. HRC said David’s firing came after a board-led investigation concluded that he had violated his contract when he consulted on former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s response to sexual harassment allegations in Dec. 2020, as first detailed in a report by the New York Attorney General’s office on efforts by the former governor’s aides to discredit his accusers."

Why would the attorney who leads HRC consult with a straight white male on responding to sexual harrassment charges of a former female employee? How much money was at stake? How much money changed hands? Answers greater than zero for either question confirm why the organization needs a complete makeover. There is now officially too much money and politics occupying the organizations attention and energy.

“I asked for the report, they refused. They lied about producing the report. Now that they are being called to task, they tried to shut me up,” David tweeted Monday night. “Expect a legal challenge.”
It is so sad that this type of adversarial off- brand conversations has begun-- and was initiated from a place of humiliation.

If I were a donor, I would want all my money back. I am very glad for the spotlight shined on the now impotent and obsolete fund addressing human rights for the one-percent and one-percent adjacent. Let this be a lesson learned-- the left can be corrupted by great wealth and power just as badly as the center and or the right.
The release of HRC version 2.0 must begin ASAP.
