David Refuses to Resign. Alphonso David, head of the Human Rights Campaign, belligerently declines to step aside amid a swirling scandal. He is accused of aiding Cuomo’s efforts to smear Lindsey Boylan. David is a long time crony of the disgraced former Governor. He formerly served as Cuomo’s Chief Counsel. The impasse is further evidence of the unprincipled people who surrounded and advised the Governor. It is appalling that one entrusted to protect Human Rights should have engaged in such conduct. People are judged by the company they keep. David turned over Boylan’s personnel file to the administration. Incredibly enough he professes his innocence. He maintains he did nothing wrong. David Refuses to Resign. Yet another Cuomo Ally has proven to be totally UNETHICAL !!
