Perhaps What Used to be the Advocate’s Treatment of the EEOC Nomination Was a Signal from Gay, Inc.

First there was this.

Now there’s this – from Queer Channel Media:

A number of LGBT groups have come out in support of nominees for a federal agency charged with enforcing civil rights law amid opposition from Republicans and discontent from an anti-gay group.

Both nominees were nominated by President Obama to serve on the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. P. David Lopez was named in July to serve for another term as the agency’s general counsel and Charlotte Burrows, a former staffer for the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, was named in September to serve as commissioner for the agency.

The nation’s largest LGBT group, the Human Rights Campaign, remains silent on the [Lopez] nomination. The organization didn’t respond to multiple requests from the Washington Blade to comment on the nominees, nor to say whether it will include the confirmation votes as part of its congressional scorecard.

HRC is what HRC always was and HRC always was what HRC will always be.

That sound you hear is high-level negotiations between HRC and the as-yet-undeclared Rand Paul campaign for a ‘see how nonpartisan we are’ 2016 presidential endorsement.
