Republican Mike Huckabee’s left Ryan White’s mom high and dry – again.
Huckabee agreed last month to meet with Jeanne Ginder-White after the former Governor’s HIV quarantine comments made headlines. Presidential candidate Huckabee, however, has yet to get in touch with Ginder-White. And activists are pissed: blockquote>”We are still waiting for the meeting,â€ said A. Gene Copello, Executive Director of The AIDS Institute. â€œIt is our sincere hope that Governor Huckabee will keep his word given to Jeanne White-Ginder that he will meet with her,” said Copello.
“Is Governor Huckabee a man of his word or is this just more typical political double-speak?â€ said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese. â€œIt has been 29 days, Jeanne White-Ginder and the HIV/AIDS advocacy community continues to wait.”
Huckabee, do yourself a favor and sit down with Ginder-White. At least for a photo-op to prop up that “compassionate” persona.
*Has Solmonese forgotten his ENDA double speak?
