- Covington argues that the Human Rights Campaign and Equality NC are using HB2 to fundraise;
- Calls HRC and Equality NC “Gay Supremacy.”
Janice Covington was the first transgender elected to the DNC from North Carolina in 2012. She was also appointed to serve on the credentialing committee at the DNC this past year in Philadelphia. Now Covington comes forward with a scathing Facebook post confronting the Human Rights Campaign and Equality North Carolina for using HB2 as a political fundraising opportunity.
The Boycotts from HB2 Created a Gold Rush for our community and the Human Rights Campaign and Equality North Carolina seized the opportunity pushing the local organizations out of the box once they realized the fundraising opportunity created by HB2.
She also goes on to question where the money is going from those fundraising venues such as concerts where proceeds from the ticket sales were earmarked to fight HB2.
We asked where the money went, because local orgs did not get any. We asked who is getting it from the concerts that dedicated there funds to fight against HB2, we asked for transparency and got no answer from either organization. …someone said Chad Griffin from the Human Rights Campaign was flying in for a press conference about HB2 with the city, I guess with his bank bag.
In her Facebook post, Covington goes on to say that collectively, HRC and Equality NC
…seem to project a message in their closed little world of Gay Supremacy…
And, Covington finishes her post by saying the two groups never share their money or information with anyone but themselves:
You see HRC and ENC are users and they will never share their information or money to help anyone but themselves, they are made up mostly of misogynist and vainglorious who feed on attention to aggrandize themselves.
The news person reported that the council’s room during the meeting last night was PACKED with people from the Human Rights Campaign. This is a total lie.
