Foley Must Refund $27K to Gay DNC Wing, HRC


No one has been shocked!, shocked! to find the gay wing of the Democratic National Committee, the Human Rights Campaign silent on the Foley scandal. HRC is just too squeamish to figure out something, ANYTHING, of substance to say about the ex-congressman, now in rehab.

The largest gay organization in America and all its members can't see a single reason to weigh in on anything related to Foley, showing HRC has all the backbone of one of the dead, boneless chickens served at their dinners.

I have a piece of unsolicited advice for HRC, if it wants to change course and factor in somehow to this major upheaval in the House, weeks before the midterm election.

Ask Foley to return the $27,000 HRC has donated to him since 2000, especially the $2,000 for this election.

Send a message to all members of Congress that HRC is not a bunch of wimps, afraid to stand up and ask a candidate, who just happens to be homosexual, to return a donation, Joe Solmonese.

Leadership and taking a stand during a gay-related congressional crisis. What a concept for HRC to embrace.

HRC's donations to Foley:

2000
$10,000


2002
$10,000


2004
$5,000


2006
$2,000

I for one am shocked to hear that HRC has donated any money to Foley. Wasn't he objectively anti-gay? Isn't that one reason he's being so excoriated now? Or is it really just because he was (publicly) opposed to the sexual predation of sub-18 teenagers?

The HRC hasn't been silent.

Foley scored an 88 out of 100 on GLBT issues tracked by HRC. See their scorecard here (PDF file). Also the HRC released a statement on Foley today.

The HRC is not part of the DNC.
