Exhibit A: Nancy Brinker, founder and CEO of Susan G. Komen, the organization that runs the breast cancer Race for the Cure, is now spinning wildly, clearly in panic mode, on the front page of the organization’s Web site. Keep in mind as you watch the video that she’s a George W. Bush political appointee and has donated nearly $200,000 to GOP candidates and the party.
I also get a chuckle out of the name of the video “Straight talk from Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker.” Yeah, straight talk is exactly what it is as Komen’s senior vice president, Karen Handel, in addition to being a conservative Republican anti-abortion activist, is also a huge homophobe.
If Race for the Cure is going to survive, they need a new CEO and senior vice president, pronto. (h/t digby)
