Victory Fund Wants LGBT Presidential Appointees

The Victory Fund has launched an ambitious project:
Washington, D.C.—The Gay & Lesbian Leadership Institute (GLLI) today announced the launch of the Presidential Appointments Project, a non-partisan effort designed to help grow the pool of openly lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) professionals who would be qualified and ready to accept politically appointed positions in the next U.S. presidential administration. In concert with other leading national LGBT groups, GLLI will identify, recruit and vet openly LGBT applicants for thousands of executive branch positions that will be filled with political appointees after the next president is sworn in.

“Our goal is to make sure all Americans have an equal voice in their government. Through public service, our community demonstrates a commitment to making our country a better place for all its citizens and for every kind of family. In 1996, we worked closely with the second Clinton administration to identify gays and lesbians who were qualified to serve the president. We stand ready to help whoever is elected this November,” said Chuck Wolfe, president and CEO of GLLI.
Sounds like they're gearing up for a Democratic president. Happy face.
