The left is so angry with Lieberman that they are taking it out on his wife and a breast cancer charity:
A liberal Web site is trying to enlist celebrities to persuade a top breast cancer research group to dump Sen. Joe Lieberman’s wife as its “global ambassador,” saying Hadassah Lieberman’s health care lobbying work and her husband’s opposition to the so-called public option make her unfit for the role.
The site Firedoglake has started lobbying celebrities attached to the organization, Susan G. Komen for the Cure — including daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and actor Neil Patrick Harris — to use their star power to force out Lieberman.
“People who are racing for the cure wouldn’t be racing to pay Hadassah Lieberman money,” the Web site said in a statement Monday.
But the charity isn’t interested in losing a supporter (which is smart, those who are fighting cancer need all the help they can get):
“Hadassah Lieberman is an important and valued global ambassador for Susan G. Komen for the Cure,” the group said in a written statement. “As a global ambassador, Ms. Lieberman is focused on helping us reach out and educate women outside our borders about breast cancer, sharing our knowledge and experience in a culturally sensitive way that is making a real impact on the lives of women across the globe. We have every intention of continuing our relationship with Ms. Lieberman in our mutual pursuit of a world without breast cancer.”
So, if the charity doesn’t get rid of Lieberman, does the left boycott the charity? Is that their next move?
