TimeToResign.com is a campaign calling on FBI Director James Comey to resign.
11 days before the US presidential election, the FBI violated its own rules and meddled in the election by launching yet another inquiry into Hillary Clinton based on spurious evidence. With one week to go, they did it again, publishing records from a 15-year-old investigation of Bill Clinton. Yet, the FBI refuses to release anything about Donald Trump’s housing discrimination case or his campaign’s alleged ties to Russia. Whether FBI Director James Comey is a political partisan, or has simply lost control of a rogue FBI, the American people have lost faith in an agency that now appears to be little more than an arm of the Republican party. The FBI needs to clean house, starting with its own Director. Join the TimeToResign.com campaign - tell James Comey it's time to resign.

He played a pivotal role in Ellen DeGeneres’ coming out, and subsequent media frenzy, by helping to orchestrate international coverage.

Most recently, Klein helped to raise awareness of the plight of LGBT Russians suffering under Vladimir Putin’s regime, transforming a little-known injustice into a global controversy by securing national and international media coverage. Following the massacre earlier this year at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, Klein worked with a variety of LGBT grassroots and gun safety organizations to organize vigils and protests, and provide media outreach as a campaign spokesperson.
