Alphonso David alleges racist treatment at the Human Rights Campaign in post-firing interview

LGBTQ Nation reports that former Human Rights Campaign (HRC) President Alphonso David has opened up about the fallout from the investigation into former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) that eventually led to his own firing last week. David sat down with out MSNBC anchor Jonathan Capehart in an appearance on the Sunday Show to discuss where he is going from here. David alleges that he was treated differently based on his race at the organization, citing past presidents and leaders who were white that were not being pushed to resign after controversies followed them. This marks the first time that David has spoken publicly since his firing was first reported last weekend in the New York Times, hours before some employees at the LGBTQ organization were even told. HRC COO Joni Madison has become the acting president in his place.

Alphonso David Fired by Human Rights Campaign After Cuomo Firestorm HRC OutBuro LGBT professional entrepreneur online networking community gay lesbian bisexual transgender nonbinary

Alphonso David Fired by Human Rights Campaign After Cuomo Firestorm

After Cuomo’s sexual harassment firestorm our partners at the Advocate are reporting that the Human Rights Campaign has fired Alfonso David who had been the organization’s president since 2019 and was being widely criticized for helping former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo respond to sexual harassment accusations. David released a statement Sunday night saying he had been asked to resign even though an investigation of the Cuomo matter found no wrongdoing on his part. The chairs disputed this in an email leaked to the media on Monday morning and David responded with another statement defending his position he has now responded to his firing by saying, “Expect legal challenge.” Cox and Patterson said his Sunday night statement contained “significant untruths” and that the Sidley Austin investigation found that his work (sexual harassment cover-up efforts) for Cuomo violated HRC’s policy on conflict of interest. Sources told the New York Times the decision to fire David was unanimous except for two abstentions from members of the foundation board. Big news. Expect a legal challenge. In other words, he’s not going quietly. And that just confirms he does not have HRC or the LGBTQ community’s best interest in mind. What is further appalling is that he is a former Civil Rights attorney.

See the New York Times article here:

His Wikipedia page has already been updated to indicate him as the FORMER President of HRC: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alphonso_David

Alphonso David (born 1970) is an American lawyer, LGBT civil rights activist,[1] and former president of the Human Rights Campaign.[2] In August 2019, he became the president of the Human Rights Campaign. He was the first civil rights lawyer and first person of color to serve as president of the organization,[3][4][5] but was fired from his role as president on September 6, 2021 after it was revealed that he advised former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo when he was accused of sexually assaulting women.[6]

Damn – that was fast.

Human Rights Campaign leader Alphonso David faces internal crisis of confidence over Cuomo scandal

Alphonso David, the Executive Directory of the Human Rights Campaign is embroiled in controversy commingled in the Governor Cuomo Sexual Harassment scandal. Alphonso David was an aid to Cuomo during the alleged sexual harassment allegation period and may have actively participated in the cover-up and silencing of the women who claim to be the victims of the alligations. If it is found that Alphonso David did take part in any way, his role at the Human Rights Campaign is likely to come to an end only after 2 years of service to the largest LGBTQ rights organization in the United States. Naturally, he is innocent until proven guilty. But this is currently not good optics for the Human Rights Campaign organization. According to the New York Attorney General, Alphonso David contributed in the communications to and attempts to smear one victim by releasing her private personal records. This is shocking consider Alphonso David is both African American and a gay man who should have protected the rights of other minorities.
