Mitt Romney’s Gay Spokesman Quits After Bashings From Christian GOP Right – Video
The Washington Post reports today that Richard Grenell who was named by the Romney campaign as Foreign Policy and National Security Spokesman. has resigned because he was “hounded from the campaign by anti-gay conservatives.”
I have decided to resign from the Romney campaign as the Foreign Policy and National Security Spokesman. While I welcomed the challenge to confront President Obama’s foreign policy failures and weak leadership on the world stage, my ability to speak clearly and forcefully on the issues has been greatly diminished by the hyper-partisan discussion of personal issues that sometimes comes from a presidential campaign. I want to thank Governor Romney for his belief in me and my abilities and his clear message to me that being openly gay was a non-issue for him and his team.
Of course Bryan Fischer of the anti-gay hate group the American Family Association and one of Grenell’s main Right Wingnut attackers could not hide his overwhelming happiness (and first orgasm in 25 years) over the news.
I love the smell of GOP cannibalism in the morning.
