Sullivan to Solmonese: Resign

Andrew-sullivanx390

Blogger Andrew Sullivan issued a video calling for Human Rights Campaign president Joe Solmonese to resign, saying the organization "has 20 years of zero achievement for gay rights in Washington, D.C."

Sullivan spoke on Saturday at the Equality to End HIV/AIDS Rally and Vigil at the Ellipse in front of the White House, just before President Obama was due to address HRC at its national dinner.

The gay blogger said he was prompted by an e-mail from Solmonese late last week that suggested HRC would give President Obama until 2017, the end of his potential second term, to fulfill his campaign promises to LGBT Americans.

"I am incensed, infuriated, and I think Solmonese should resign as soon as possible," said Sullivan in the video (below). "I'm not tolerating this. None of us should tolerate this anymore."

He continued to blast HRC for its perceived accommodation.

"They're basically the battered wife of the Democratic Party establishment, and it's time they walked out the door," he said.

HRC has not responded to requests for comment.
