President of LGBTQ Advocacy Group Fired Over Ties to Ex-Gov. Cuomo

The Index Today

The present of the largest LGBTQ advocacy group, Human Rights Campaign, was fired on Monday after he was found to have advised former NY governor Andrew Cuomo. Alphonso David’s dismissal was announced by Morgan Cox and Jodie Patterson, co-chairs of the board.
New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo was previously accused of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior towards multiple women. The Human Rights Campaign board issued a statement saying that Alphonso’s decision to assist Cuomo’s team was against the campaign’s mission. They further went on to say that Alphonso David made untrue statements regarding the investigation and his role.
The Statement said, “At HRC, we are fighting to bring full equality and liberation to LGBTQ people everywhere. That includes fighting on behalf of all victims of sexual harassment and assault.”
Alphonso David has stated that he was unjustly terminated and that he will proceed with legal action. He continued to say, “As a black, gay man who ha spent his whole life fighting for civil and human rights, they cannot shut me up. Expect a legal challenge.”
Alphonso has worked as the president of the HRC for more than two years and has prior experience working for Cuomo. He has been reported to be involved in Cuomo’s allegations and was blamed for being involved in efforts against the accuser.
