America’s largest LGBT advocacy group has dramatically fired its president for advising ex-NY Governor Andrew Cuomo how to handle sex pest claims.
The Human Rights Commission announced it had terminated Alphonso David ‘for cause’ after a vote by the group’s board Monday night.
Board co-chairs Morgan Cox and Jodie Patterson said David’s departure was effective immediately, and that he’d been ousted ‘for violations of his contract with the human rights campaign.’
David came under fire after New York Attorney General Letitia James named him into her report Cuomo allegedly sexually harassing 11 women.
She claimed David – a trained lawyer – had offered advice how to handle the blowback.
David, who was the HRC’s first black president, issued a furious rebuttal hours before his firing, claiming he was the victim and that he was being bullied out.
