Out Man Named District Attorney R. Seth Williams’s Communications Director and Spokesperson

Philadelphia District Attorney R. Seth Williams announced today that he has named Cameron L. Kline his communications director and spokesperson. In a press release sent out this afternoon Williams touted Kline for his “wealth of communications experience – from neighborhood to non-profit and from political to corporate – to the job, but he is a consummate professional who understands the City of Philadelphia and our amazing neighborhoods.”

Kline comes to the job as a former communications director for Philadelphia Senator Larry Farnese and press secretary for State Treasurer Rob McCord’s campaign for Governor of Pennsylvania. You may be more familiar with him, however, from his headline-making move in 2012 when he, as a lifelong scout, returned his Eagle Scout medal to the Boy Scouts of America to protest the organization’s decision to uphold a ban on gay scouts.

Kline currently lives with his partner in South Philadelphia. He has a Master’s Degree from the University of Illinois, and is a board member for the Liberty City LGBT Democratic Club.
