Gay Liberal Democratic group crows that it gets instant IRS approval of its 501c3 status

Groups critical of the Obama regime get IRS harassment and delays, but those supportive crow they get instant approval.  Here’s Sean Bugg on LinkedIn!

NGLF achieves these goals through directly honoring achievements of LGBT people under 30, building a network of Next Generation Award winners to mentor and teach others, and organizing leadership-training events for interested and qualified applicants.

Mr. Bugg is a publisher of the leftist Democratic magazine and website Metroweekly, in which one will have great difficulty finding any significant criticism of any Democrat, or anything other than attacks on anyone from any other political party.  Indeed, if memory serves, if you go through the archives of Mr. Bugg’s own columns you will find him rationalizing, excusing and defending President Obama when he fails to deliver on gay issues.
I attended the awards ceremony for the Foundation last year.  It was a room full of people who work for the government and Democratic Party groups and allied non-profits.  I would suspect about 3 people there were something other than Democrats.  The award winners were diverse by race and sex but all basically worked for the kind of government funded non-profits Democratic campaign workers are parked in to collect a salary in between campaigns.

For instance Ms. Victoria Kirby, a 2011 winner interviewed by Bugg’s own Metroweekly.  Where does she work?  Obama’s Organizing for Action:


Victoria Kirby is also doing her part to support the foundation. This 2011 Next Generation Award winner, now based in Tampa, Fla., as state coordinator of Organizing for Action, has joined on as one of Bugg’s board members.


“I’m really excited about this,” says Kirby. “I think it’s a great idea. When you look at the programs available for people in our community, it’s needed.”


While Kirby grants there are a number of organizations running programs aimed at guiding young LGBT people, she believes the Next Generation Leadership Foundation is unique with its emphasis on mentoring across a range of fields. Similarly, Bugg emphasizes that he wanted to ensure the NGLF mission would not duplicate any work already being done.


“Having programs where people can see role models is very important,” Kirby says of the foundation’s efforts. “It’s important we raise leaders who feel comfortable in their own skin.”

“I’m very proud of Sean for making this jump,” adds Kirby, 26, building up to the pitch that shows she has board-member acumen beyond her years. “I’m excited about the idea, making the camp a reality. I’d encourage readers to give, open their pocketbooks and hearts to young people being trained and empowered to truly become the leaders of the next generation of our community.”
