everal months after landing in hot water for severing its ties to Planned Parenthood, breast cancer charity Susan G. Komen for the Cure announced a shakeup in its top leadership: Founder and CEO Nancy Brinker is stepping down to "a new management role focusing on revenue creation," and president Elizabeth Thompson is leaving the organization altogether in September. After the pink-ribbon charity's short-lived adventure in abortion politics, its prodigious fundraising efforts took a hit. "Bringing in new people who weren't part of the bad decisions will help [the charity] be more focused on their mission," says Daniel Borochoff at CharityWatch. "But it does depend who they pick" to replace Brinker and Thompson.
