WTF, Solmonese! Are You Serious?

Yet another HRC fail, as the Advocate reports Joe Solmonese's comments on the Tennessee workplace discrimination debacle.  After the Chamber of Commerce lobbied for the anti-gay bill, Joe chose to instead gush about big corporations "leading the way" to equality, even though the Chamber didn't reverse its support of the bill until it was too late for its reversal to mean anything.

“Discrimination should have no place in the Volunteer State and the Chamber’s opposition to this law sent a strong signal that corporations are on the leading edge of positive change. In contrast Governor Haslam has put discrimination ahead of the state’s values and even business interests by signing this horrible legislation.”

Joe, seriously?

  1. Hm. Inclined to agree. I'm going to reverse my opinion on voting Democrat in my local elections JUST after the ballot closes. Oh wait, there's nothing courageous or even worthy of praise about coming to the conclusion doing something discriminatory might make you look bad and submitting a press release to the contrary. I'm glad you're on point here.
