Mitt Romney's Openly Gay Foreign Policy Spokesman Has Quit
Richard Grenell is an out gay man who worked for 12 days as Mitt Romney's foreign-policy spokesman.
And he immediately was under heat from conservatives.
Romney reportedly had no problem with Grenell, but the real righties questioned the guy's open gayness and were also concerned about security risks blah blah.
So Grenell has left, feeling it's the right thing to do for Romney's sake.
This is so icky in a bunch of ways. Basically, it's the story of a gay guy working for a cretin and having to leave because even bigger cretins have a problem with his sexuality.
*Is it possible Romney pushed him out but is allowing him to say he quit?
*What was an out gay doing being employed by such a freak in the first place?
