  SPLC SUDDENLY FIRES CO-FOUNDER OVER "PERSONNEL ISSUE"

Silicon Valley's favorite arbiter of hate, the Southern Poverty Law Center, has fired co-founder Morris Dees and scrubbed his biography from their website, according to the Montgomery Advertiser.

The 82-year-old Dees co-founded the Montgomery-based organization in 1971.

Richard Cohen, President of the SPLC, said that Dees' dismissal was effective as of Wednesday, March 13.

"As a civil rights organization, the SPLC is committed to ensuring that the conduct of our staff reflects the mission of the organization and the values we hope to instill in the world," said Cohen in a statement emailed to the Advertiser. "When one of our own fails to meet those standards, no matter his or her role in the organization, we take it seriously and must take appropriate action."

It is unknown what Dees did to warrant his dismissal, but we're guessing it's pretty bad. When the Associated Press reached out to Dees by phone, he said the matter "involved a personnel issue."

AL reporter Josh Moon tweeted on Thursday that the allegations involve sexual harassment incidents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may be the "good reason" for Dee's termination; but was it, in fact, the "real reason" for his sudden retirement?!?

It is difficult to know; however, there was a story floating around a couple of days ago which might do well to explain his sudden "fall from grace":

Southern Poverty Law Center Surpassed half-billion dollars in assets, with 121 million parked offshore.

WOW! it sure looks as though this organization never planned on taking up poverty for any of its principals any time soon!!
