Shake-Up Continues At HRC

Less than a week ago, HRC Communications Director Brad Luna was told his position "has been eliminated." Following several days of rumors, today Luna's deputy, Trevor Thomas, confirmed his departure as well.
On Monday, I will begin my new role as a communications consultant for Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN), a non-partisan, non-profit, legal services and policy organization dedicated to ending discrimination against military personnel affected by "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT). Since 2007, I have had the amazing opportunity to work with many of you while serving at the Human Rights Campaign, a group dedicated to the equal rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. I will now have the opportunity to focus full-time on repealing DADT and helping those discharged under the law.
For several years Luna and Thomas had been this blog's contact persons with the HRC. Their updated staff roster lists only house blogger Michael Cole as communications staff. HRC remains mum on the departures, which come on the heels of their greatest public relations debacle, that whole Dan Choi-Kathy Griffin-Bravo mess. Who will be the HRC's new press relations officer? Will they even bother?
