I am disturbed and disgusted to see an organization turning something so basic, so necessary, so fundamental as health into a political and profitable pawn. It's bad enough that Nancy Brinker admits is a Republican donor and ambassador, but to hire and pay politicians and Republican strategists like Karen Handel and Bush former press secretary Ari Fleischer to help guide their policy on de-funding Planned Parenthood and thus de-funding breast cancer screenings... I am disturbed and disgusted that the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation has the gall to call themselves a partisan "non-profit" - while raking in lavish salaries and lifestyles, and paying political strategists. I will NEVER support any event, product, or time for the Komen foundation ever again. Board members that fly around in first class, hold lavish parties, get plastic surgery with their salaries, taking money away from research. For shame, Nancy Brinker. You have sold your sister out for a personal profit. I will never buy anything that bears the Komen foundation's name on it. I support breast cancer research and will donate elsewhere. But I'm left to wonder why with as much power and wealth the Komen foundation has, that a cure has yet to be found. Perhaps it is because it will put Brinker out of a job, and put an end to her half a million a year salary (plus benefits).
