NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE
ENDORSES MOE DAVIS FOR CONGRESS
The National Organization for Women Political Action Committee – the fundraising arm of the largest organization of grassroots activists for women’s issues – has endorsed Moe Davis for Congress in North Carolina’s 11th District.
NOW PAC has been working to elect candidates who support women’s issues since 1977.
“NOW has a long tradition of fighting for women’s rights, racial and economic justice, marriage equality and reproductive rights,’’ Col. Davis said. “I’m pleased to have earned their support and look forward to working to advance our shared vision of a more fair and just America.”
Moe Davis served 25 years in the Air Force, retiring as Colonel in 2008. He is best known as the Chief Prosecutor at Guantanamo Bay who stood up to the Bush Administration and resigned his post when ordered to use evidence obtained through torture. But notably, Col. Davis also headed the investigation into the sexual assault scandal at the Air Force Academy in 2003 that led to the demotion of the Academy’s superintendent.
As judge with the U.S. Department of Labor, Col. Davis also ruled in favor of a female professor on an equal pay issue, ordering back wages to be paid by Southern Illinois University School of Medicine.
