Progressives across the country are growing increasingly frustrated with Sen. Joe Lieberman and now at least one group has decided to do something about it — attack his wife! Liberal website Firedoglake launched a campaign against Hadassah Lieberman on Friday to remove her from her position as "Global Ambassador" for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation because "of the inherent conflict of interest her continued presence brings." The site has called on celebrities who've raised money for the charity, like Ellen and Neil Patrick Harris, to help oust Lieberman, who has previously consulted for large pharmaceutical companies. The charity, so far, hasn't budged. "We have every intention of continuing our relationship with Ms. Lieberman in our mutual pursuit of a world without breast cancer," a spokesman said.
