What Do We Do With Karen Handel?

As you are aware, in the aftermath of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure/Planned Parenthood debacle, Karen Handel submitted her letter of resignation. The text leaves us with as many questions as it does answers. Did she leave because she felt she was no longer valued as an employee? Does the offer of severance pay imply that Nancy Brinker requested that she resign? Did she leave because Susan G. Komen for the Cure allowed it to be manipulated by the Democrats while Karen Handel is a card carrying Republican?

I’m sure we could brainstorm motivation all day and still not know anything. What I do know is that Karen Handel looks like the hero in this mess. It is certain that the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization has made a bad decision by reinstating abortion provide Planned Parenthood. It is certain that Karen Handel left the organization because of that decision. For that, she should be applauded. My prayer is that others in that organization will follow her example and cause Nancy Brinker and the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization to reconsider their affiliations.
