Sanders Supporters Perturbed by Human Rights Campaign's Clinton Endorsement

Yesterday, the Human Rights Campaign, the largest LGBT civil rights organization in the U.S., endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, in a move that angered many of the group's supporters.

While Clinton was thrilled with the endorsement, some of the Human Rights Campaign's supporters were less enthused and were quick to point out that Clinton has had a less-than-stellar track record on issues relating to gay rights. Clinton first endorsed the idea of gay marriage in 2013 and had previously supported the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), whereas Sanders has supported same-sex unions and gay rights for the past several decades.

Perhaps this is the reason why HRC is supporting the other HRC?

The election drama on the left keeps heating up.
