Log Cabin’s far right cousin attacks Romney over gay spokesman’s departure

I wouldn’t normally give much weight to what GOProud says, as they act more-Republican-than-gay, but that’s what makes this all the more interesting.  GOProud is upset with Romney for throwing his now-former gay spokesman, Ric Grenell, under the bus in the face of criticism from anti-gay Republicans.

“The Romney campaign should have spoken up publicly in defense of Rick against the attacks over the past two weeks,” GOProud’s executive director Jimmy LaSalvia said in an interview with me just now.

“This was an opportunity to send an important message that Mitt Romney wants everybody to get behind him and to support his camapign,” LaSalvia continued. “They let that opportunity pass.”

It’s difficult for Romney to send a message when his positions change by the day.
