The president of the Human Rights Campaign had earlier revealed that the organization wanted him out in order to redirect attention away from the official's ties to the Cuomo sexual harassment report. Alarms had sounded off after it was determined he was consulted in a letter to character assassinate one of Cuomo's accusers.
Alphonso David, the president of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), was dismissed by the group's board on Monday night, after a story disclosing that he guided former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on how to handle sex harassment charges surfaced, The New York Times reported.
According to the report, in a decision that followed a joint meeting of the boards of the HRC and its linked foundation, David was discharged "for cause."
