Alphonso David Fired by Human Rights Campaign


Human Rights Campaign (HRC) president Alphonso David was fired on September 6 following an investigation into his role in New York Attorney General Letitia James’ report on former Governor Andrew Cuomo.

According to James’ report, David worked with the former governor’s team in response to multiple accusations of sexual harassment against the former governor. David, who previously served as Cuomo’s top counsel, allegedly provided the former governor’s team with an accuser’s personnel file, engaged in discussions to secretly record a different accuser, and “actively consulted” with Cuomo following the allegations, the attorney general’s report stated.
