Debbie Does (In) ENDA

From Queer Channel Media:

A gay Democratic activist claims that Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) has discouraged House members from asking President Obama to take administrative action to protect LGBT workers, an assertion her office calls a “bald-faced lie.”

Paul Yandura, political director for gay philanthropist Jonathan Lewis, made the allegation when speaking with the Washington Blade from his home in West Virginia on Thursday regarding a 2013 missive that was circulated among House members by Reps. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) and Lois Capps (D-Calif.).

“I was told personally by two members that she was tamping down on public calls for the president to make good on his promise — this was last year when the issue was really getting hot,” Yandura said. “She is most likely doing the same still.”

If she wasn’t involved with the DNC – you know, the entity that apparently actually wants to lose the 2014 mid-term elections – I might at least be willing to consider the possibility that she might be telling the truth.

At this point, I just want to know how much she and/or the DNC is getting from HRC – an organization that we all know is doing even more to kill even the very notion of ENDA than the christianist right ever has – in return for her opposition.
