John Aravosis and Joe Sudbay at AmericaBlog have launched a donor boycott of the Democratic National Committee over gay rights promises not fulfilled by the President and the party:
"We are asking voters to pledge to withhold contributions to the
Democratic National Committee, Organizing for America, and the Obama
campaign until the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) is passed,
Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (DADT) is repealed, and the so-called Defense of
Marriage Act (DOMA) is repealed -– all of which President Obama
repeatedly promised to do if elected."
The bloggers have published a comprehensive list of reasons and say the money should "pause" to the organization until promises are kept: "We are not calling for a boycott of donations to the DNC. We are simply
calling for a pause until the party follows through on its campaign
promise to repeal DADT and DOMA, and pass ENDA. The party will get the
same donations it would have gotten, when the promises are kept. The
Democrats could choose to make good on their promise today. And by
doing so, they will only further motivate the Democratic base to again
turn out for the next election, a decidedly good thing."
