Having slithered off the GLAAD board of directors amidst other departures announced in that organization’s long-awaited statement, Troup Coronado, Esq., — the AT&T handmaiden who’s the source of all this travail in LBGT organizations that took “stands” on the T-Mobile merger and net neutrality — has left the Equality California Institute Board of Directors as well.

Six members of the the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Board of Directors have resigned, furthering the leadership crisis at that organization which began with letters from the now-fired ‘president,’ Jarrett Barrios, to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on behalf of corporate patron AT&T’s interests before that body. AT&T handmaiden and GLAAD board member Troup Coronado was not among those who resigned.

The president of GLAAD (essentially, the organization’s executive director) has resigned in the wake of the scandal about letters that went to the FCC over his signature, drafted by donor AT&T, that Barrios apparently neither read nor understood. which he then subsequently disavowed.

For any LGBT group, the bottom line should have been that when LGTB rights were pitted against corporate rights, Coronado was willing to give a group of people with seriously homophobic judicial histories enormous power to determine the future of lives of people within the LGTB community

The AT&T/GLAAD gaywashing scandal proceeds apace. The AT&T-written letter GLAAD ‘president’ Jarrett Barrios submitted to the Federal Communications Commission is linked to former Orrin Hatch staffer and current AT&T lobbyist Mr Troup Coronado, GLAAD board member.
Lobbyist Mr Troup Coronado has a smarmy history that goes back to the bad, old days when Speaker Dennis Hastert and his now-felon deputy Tom Delay set the loosest ethics rules in the the history of the House of Representatives.
