Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Karen Handel waves to supporters during an election-night party in Atlanta in 2010. According to a source with direct knowledge of decision-making at Komen headquarters in Dallas, Handel, vice president for public policy, was a driving force behind Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s decision this week to cut breast-screening grants to Planned Parenthood. Komen officials denied she had a major role.
