    The time has come. It is time for the Human Rights Campaign leadership to introspect. The election of 2008 gave Democrats a supermajority in the Senate, control of the House, and the Presidency. We not only had hope, we had expectations. We heard promises and pledges. The two years since have given us disappointment after disappointment. It is appropriate at this time to ponder what went wrong.

    We believe Joe Solomonese to have significantly contributed to the failure to pass ENDA, DOMA, DADT and many other equality bills. I wish you to read what you said on 12/09/10 after the failure of DADT in the senate.

    “You know, I was in a lot of those meetings”, and to the next question, you answered this, “ I think everybody involved in this process let the community down. Every one of the players in this process let the community down.” Joe Solomonese, proudly states he is part of the process but not of the failure. The Human Rights campaign is PART of the failure and it is time that you consider changing your leadership and your lobbying methods.

    The HRC is perhaps the best known gay rights group in the country. A lot of people hear your statements. You often represent us. We believe we have the obligation to tell those that represent us how we feel. We feel you have become part of the problem.. It is time for you to ask yourself if the community would be better served by someone more effective. We have asked ourselves this and have come to the conclusion that is time for you to serve the community some other way. Therefore we are petitioning your resignation.

    what should I change? Everything?
