HRC: Daily Beast Story an 'Outright Lie, Recklessly Irresponsible'

Hrc Last night, the Human Rights Campaign's Michael Cole released a statement to us regarding the report by Jason Bellini posted on The Daily Beast alleging a deal with Congress to delay 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' in order to push other items on the LGBT rights agenda.

Said HRC: "This story is not only an outright lie, it is recklessly irresponsible.  HRC never made such a deal and continues to work with congress and the administration on a full range of equality issues including a swift end to the military's shameful ban on gay servicemembers."

Report: HRC Made Deal to Delay Repeal of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'


In a new report at The Daily Beast, Jason Bellini claims that Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) "let slip" to a number of gay leaders that the Human Rights Campaign told him that "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is not the White House's priority.

According to Bellini, gay leaders in Washington made a deal with leaders in the House to not push for DADT until sometime next year. "Congressional sources" tell Bellini that HRC wants to focus on a federal hate crimes bill and the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) first.

HRC denies there is any such deal.
