>Talking Points Memo Covers Anti-Gay Smear Campaign Against GLSEN Founder Kevin Jennings
>Talking Points Memo, one of the most-read online news sources, has a story up about the anti-gay smear campaign against GLSEN Founder Kevin Jennings, who was appointed to Assistant Deputy Secretary of Education for the Department’s Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools.
GLSEN Executive Director Eliza Byard’s quote says it all:
“Up until today, I had been simply saying this is the same old stuff we’ve been dealing with for years, and we here at GLSEN have become very practiced at ignoring this kind of effort to slander us,” said Byard, “And so we really hadn’t taken action before this time. And it got to a point where there was so much energy online and in our own constituency to say we can’t let this stand.”
