A friend of a friend of a friend alerted me to this story (h/t Michael Rogers at BlogActive here or here). Lane Hudson, the young man who helped expose the predatory Mark Foley, has consequently been fired from his job at HRC, and has not been rehired by anyone in DC.
This man discreetly did what he thought was right, by exposing Mark Foley as a sex predator. He does not seek the spotlight, and he does not seek to profit from his role in the Mark Foley scandal (i.e. no book deal). He made a mistake by posting the Foley emails on his blog from a work computer, thus (arguably) violating HRC's 'anti-outing' policy. Personally, I think some sort of reprimand would have been more appropriate for Mr. Hudson's actions, but he isn't complaining and does not criticize HRC for their decision. More to his credit.
This young man who indirectly helped end the years of Total. Republican. Domination is on the verge of losing his apartment, and he's out of a job for what he did. During this Holiday season, consider giving a helping hand to the guy who gave a huge helping hand to the Progressive Movement.
If you would like to send Lane a few bucks to get him through the New Year, click here. Also, please spread the word about Lane's situation. Thank you all for your time.
