Can HRC do ANYTHING right?
The Human Rights Campaign sent out an e-mail this morning to thier 750,000 members which erroneously said Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson voted against repealing “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.”.
The only problem is, that she didn’t/ and needless to say, Eddie Bernice Johnson is not amused about the gaffe, which HRC has chalked up to a “technological glitch.”
Turns out the HRC sent constituents of Illinois Congressman Tim Johnson, who did in fact vote against DADT repeal, e-mails asking them to thank him for the vote in support of equality. and Eddie Bernice Johnson who DID VOTE for the repeal got the e-mail meant for Tim Johnson. And now to add to it, Tim Johnson’s gay constituents are equally pissed because the e-mail has given people the false impression that Tim Johnson isn’t anti-gay.
This is just another in a long line of examples of how HRC National, a multi-million dollar organization is just not worth it’s weight in saltt. If HRC cannot distinguish between the 435 members of Congress and their voting records, or t the very least fact check their email campaigns before sending them out then something definately is wrong with the organization.
