CORRECTION: HRC’s Chad Griffin Only Makes An Obscene $429,410.00 A Year, Not An Obscene $507,000.00

Last week we reported with Todd Swindell and longtime gay activist and San Francisco District 8 Supervisor Candidate Michael Petrelis of The Petrelis Files this week revealed Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin’s 2013  has climbed to the outrageously astronomical sum of over half-a-million dollars a year ($507,000.00 to be exact)    Well that was not exactly right.  There was some confusion in reading HRC’s 990’s

On the 990’s the compensation on the HRC c4 990’s is TOTAL COMPENSATION for all of the employees listed on there so that actually made Chad’s compensation $429,410. a year.  The mistake happened when numbers from the HRC Foundation  c3 990 listed for Griffin was ADDED into his salary when in actuality its the amount that the Foundation gives to HRC c4 to help cover his $429,410.00 a year salary.

Now doesn’t it make you feel better knowing that Chad Griffin ONLY makes only $232.00 an hour instead of $274.00 an hour!

Other HRC employees salaries are corrected and noted below:

Todd Swindell and longtime gay activist and San Francisco District 8 Supervisor Candidate Michael Petrelis of The Petrelis Files this week revealed Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin’s 2013  has climbed to the outrageously astronomical sum of over half-a-million dollars a year ($507,000.00 to be exact) + benefits 

Rounding out the other top 7 employee’s of HRC’s payfest we have:

James Rinefierd, treasurer
$325,285

Cathy Nelson, vice president
$293,000

Suzanne Salkind, vice president
$286,623

Fred Sainz, vice president (Who should have been fired ages ago.)
$252,234

Robert Falk, secretary
$244,475

Allison Herwitt, legislative director
$225,693

Marty Rouse, national field director (Who as an old time grassroots activist should be ashamed for copping out and cashing in)
$207,163

Which brings the total of just salary alone for just these 8 people including Griffin to $2,347,473.00 of the LGBT community’s hard earned donation money.

According to OpenSecrets.org the Human Rights Campaign only spent $650,000.00 on lobbying political issues in 2013.  Only 1/4 of the amount of its top 8 salaried workers

In 2013 HRC received an estimated $56,000,000.00 in donations.

Obscene and disgusting.
