Georgetown Officials Admit Gay Hate Crime Cover Up

Georgetown University has admitted attempting to cover up an alleged hate crime involving Bush-family friend Philip Cooney. Boi From Troy reports that gay group GU Pride met with administrators after yesterday’s protest. One attendee tells BFT:

…At the meeting, GU Pride got them to admit their mistake in not reporting the hate crime incident sooner and to take the group’s grievances to the president personally. Vice President for Student Affairs Todd Olson agreed to the formation of a new LGBT working group composed of faculty, administrators, and students to begin to make visible changes to Georgetown’s LGBT policies.

Nice to know the school’s taking this shit seriously, although it would have been better had it come before the negative press.
