Republican Wig Model Karen Handel Resigns from Komen

Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Karen Handel has resigned from her position of Vice President for Public Policy at Susan G. Komen for the Cure:

“I am deeply disappointed by the gross mischaracterizations of the strategy, its rationale, and my involvement in it,” Handel said in her letter. “I openly acknowledge my role in the matter and continue to believe our decision was the best one for Komen’s future and the women we serve.”

According to Handel, the policy, which was to remove funding from the Planned Parenthood organization, was “fully vetted” by the Komen organization, and no one had any problems. Subtext: “Thanks for throwing me under the bus for a policy that we all agreed one that one time. I appreciate it.”

There has been no word as to whether Handel will return to professional wig modeling.
