According to CBN News, the Brownback campaign will issue a press release today titled Romney Hostile to Boy Scout Leadership and Principles: Supports Gay Scout Leaders, was Cold to Scout Participation in Olympics.
Here’s an excerpt that shows when it comes to homosexuality, Mitt Romney is no boy scout:
In his 1994 Senate race in Massachusetts and later as CEO of the Salt Lake City Olympic Committee, Mitt Romney opposed Boy Scout officials who wished to prevent gay men from becoming troop leaders and was hostile to Scout participation in the 2002 Olympics.
In a 1994 debate with Ted Kennedy, Mitt Romney offered his support for gay scout leaders:
“I feel that all people should be allowed to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.”
Great, Mittens. What’s next? Support for NAMBLA?
More on this shortly. B4B is trying to get confirmation on this story.
Update 2: Romney in his own words.
