An organization of Catholic donors has chosen Alexia K. Kelley, an Obama policy advisor with connections to abortion-supporting politicians and a controversial advocacy group, as its new president and CEO.
"Alexia has a distinguished record of leadership and service in the church, the nonprofit world and government," said William F. Raskob, chairman of the board of Foundations and Donors Interested in Catholic Activities (FADICA).
In a Nov. 14 statement announcing Kelley's appointment, he praised her "strong commitment to her faith" and "keen understanding of the broad scope of the nation's religious and charitable organizations."
Kelley will be succeeding the organization's president of more than 30 years, Dr. Francis J. Butler, who retired several months ago.
