Clinton Advisor Lobbies Against Sanctions Based on Uganda Anti-Gay Law

Meet Erick Mullen:

"Erick was a consultant to Bill Bradley's presidential campaign and Hillary Clinton's first campaign for the Senate."

And his charming wife, Kelly:

"Craighead is the president and managing director of the exclusive, invitation-only Democracy Alliance, a clearinghouse that connects liberal billionaires to a select group of endorsed organizations, such as the Center for American Progress and the pro-Obama Super PAC Priorities USA, without threat of disclosure.

...

Craighead has no need for anonymity. She served as a top aide to former First Lady Hillary Clinton and later worked for her U.S. Senate campaign. The Secretary of State even presided over her wedding to Erick Mullen, a top aide to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.)."


Among the things Mr. Mullen is paid to do is this:

"Uganda Hires D.C. PR Firm Following Sanctions Over Anti-LGBT Law

The $600,000 contract with Mercury LLC is to monitor coverage and lobby on behalf of President Yoweri Museveni and Uganda."

That story refers to the original $600,000 one-year contract.

The current contract with Mercury LLC is for $150,000 per quarter, on an advance paid basis each quarter:

This is really cool - get Hillary Clinton to preside over your wedding, and get paid to protect the interests of people who want to kill LGBT persons.

1. This is a distilled version of why I support Sanders instead. It's this sort of thing.

 

It's this whole double standard thing. Mullen has no principles at all. He is a paid operative of anti gay hooligans. Fuck that.
