Rights Group Fires Worker in Foley Case

The Human Rights Campaign, a gay rights group, has fired an employee who admitted to the first publication on a Web site of then-Rep. Mark Foley’s e-mails to a former male page.

The e-mails and later disclosures of sexually explicit computer messages from the Florida Republican to other teenage male pages sparked a campaign-season scandal that threatens the GOP’s majority in Congress.

"He inappropriately used Human Rights Campaign resources. He was fired," David Smith, the organization’s vice president, said of the employee. "The Human Rights Campaign believes in being very aboveboard in our political activity."

Smith would not identify the employee by name, citing privacy concerns, but said he was a junior staff member who worked as a coordinator in Michigan.

The story doesn’t bother to get into the details, but this is the person who set up the phony StopSexPredators site which was clearly only created to give the Foley emails cover.

The gentleman in question is reported to be a former Democratic Senate staffer named Lane Hudson. But, again, the Post doesn’t think that information is important enough for their readers to be told.

Here is an example of some of Mr. Hudson’s handiwork for the DNC/HRC from the (non-partisan 501c3) HRC’s own website:
