Maybe then HRC would have been less inclined to make the 2014 Maine senate race into the 1998 New York senate race: The Next Generation.
From Crooks and Liars:
They say that no good deed goes unpunished and nothing illustrates the truth of that old trope more vividly that the Human Rights Campaign endorsing Maine Senator Susan Collins over her Democratic opponent, the stalwart defender of human rights and civil liberties, Shenna Bellows. It wasn’t the first time Republicans have been unjustly rewarded with endorsements from national liberal organizations, unfortunately. But there are few Republicans who have been more lauded by people for whom she has consistently done so little than the bucket of lukewarm water known as Susan Collins.
This endorsement was particularly galling. Shenna Bellows is not just another Democrat who supports marriage equality. She has devoted her life to expanding civil rights and civil liberties.
Want to really see what sort of scumbags the permanently-employed mushrooms of the Rhode Island Avenue Cesspoop really are? Submit your resume to HRC and say – or even imply – that you’re a trans woman. (If you try this, call a bookie and see if you can get odds onjust how quickly your resume will find its way into the garbage can.)
In her capacity as the Director of the Maine ACLU she helped lead the way for marriage equality in Maine and was instrumental in getting the Maine Human Rights Act passed.
See, there’s your other problem Shenna. You helped enact a trans-inclusive state civil rights law that did not need ‘incremental progress’ to come into being.
