Firedoglake working to oust Lieberman’s wife from breast cancer charity

posted by Susan Johnson

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?

Their next likely move would be to create a competing charity and convince supporters to move their dollars from one to the other.

One Final Word
My dear friend Michele slipped into eternity on Wednesday, February 1.   She was a remarkable woman who left a legacy of faith, determination, and love. For three years she courageously battled the ovarian cancer that eventually robbed her of her life.  A few days before she died, one of her docto
