HRC On AmericaBlog Call To Boycott DNC: Decide For Yourselves

The Human Rights Campaign has responded to yesterday’s call by John Aravois and Joe Sudbay at AmericaBlog for a boycott of LGBT donations to the Democratic National Committee.

“Individual donors should always make their own careful assessments of how to spend limited political contributions. We all need to focus on the legislative priorities identified by AmericaBlog and with whatever tactic individuals decide to employ, the ultimate objective needs to be securing the votes we need to move our legislative agenda forward.”

FireDogLake blogger David Dayen calls the HRC’s response “a tacit endorsement, or at least not a public disavowal, of the strategy.” He also notes that the HRC has not donated to the DNC since President Obama ordered that the DNC not accept funding from C(4) organizations.
