Komen Foundation VP Behind Politicization of Organization

If you have followed the story it should come as no surprise that Susan G. Komen for the Cure VP, Karen Handle was behind the overtly political move to boot Planned Parenthood from the group's grant recipients.

Now emails reviewed by Huffington Post show the smoking gun.
“The emails show that Karen Handel was behind the entire decision to defund Planned Parenthood,” The Huffington Post’s Laura Bassett told CNN’s Soledad O’Brien Monday. “She was behind the strategy to develop the new criteria for who can be funded and she’s been behind the PR effort to clean up what’s happened since the decision was announced.”
What was once a non-partisan organization has been fatally corrupted by a covert GOP operative.  I predict that the charity will wither and die, hopefully to be replaced by a non-partisan group that does the same work as the original mission of the Komen group.
