Sochi: HRC vs. IOC

HRC in an email (to some LGBT blogs) ripped the IOC today:
“If this law doesn’t violate the IOC’s charter, then the charter is completely meaningless,” said Human Rights Campaign (HRC) president Chad Griffin.  “The safety of millions of LGBT Russians and international travelers is at risk, and by all accounts the IOC has completed neglected its responsibility to Olympic athletes, sponsors and fans from around the world.  The IOC and its new president, Thomas Bach, are putting the good reputation of the Olympic Games and its corporate sponsors in jeopardy.”
