HRC’s Joe Solmonese To Jump Ship Right Before 2012 Elections

This Tuesday Human Rights Campaign’s president Joe Solmonese will announce his intention to leave the HRC on the final day of his contract—March 30, 2012. Now we get to play, “Who will the HRC hire next to defend Obama throughout the 2012 election season?” Here’s an idea: Instead of hiring a White House PR flack, why not elect someone who will actively battle the National Organization for Marriage and the anti-gay Republicans while financially supporting LGBT efforts to make Obama deliver on HIV, trans employee protections, and finally killing DOMA? It’d be a heck of a lot more effective than the HRC’s current agenda of defending Obama’s missteps while trying to convince us that they’re still relevant.
