I have a hard time believing one person could do so much damage, Handel is scum, but she had help

Maybe we should be giving to better organizations instead! You can’t unshit the bed, komen

* 1 percent of breast cancer occurs in males.

It killed my grandma (my father’s mother) and my father, metastasizing as lung cancer in my grandma and liver cancer in my dad. As one can see (and also having a family history of diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, and mental illness, for good measure), I have a really shitty gene pool.

Fuck Komen’s bullshit…if anyone wants to give to a cancer charity, make it the American Cancer Society.

I don’t think that Handel should be scapegoated. She was a known quantity to the people who hired her.

IMO the problem here is less Komen’s cutting off of PP (which still may happen) and more its seizing upon pretextual reasons. The Board is still denying that it had ever targeted Planned Parenthood or that it acted with any political motivations whatsoever.

Why should anyone believe anything that this organization says? Frankly, firing Handel, without more, would strike me as another element of a cover-up. What exactly would be the explanation for firing her—that Handel had pulled the wool over their eyes?

To stanch the bleeding, I think that key Komen officers and board members are going to have to ’fess up and step down.

Handle has resigned.
