Paul Singer, billionaire hedge fund founder and Republican donor, regarding his $375,000 donation to help push the passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) which would help stop discrimination against LGBT people in the workplace. Singer joins other GOP donors and former lawmakers in a coalition named Americans for Workplace Opportunity, supported by the HRC, which will work to persuade 48 House Republicans “most likely to support the bill” to join the 199 lawmakers who have already co-sponsored ENDA.
