Maloy clarifies Romney Pink Gay Pride poster issue, sort of

Aaron suggested it, but Romney staff created it

Says Rick Perry and Rick Santorum are hateful targeting of minorities

By Aaron Maloy

I did NOT make the pink flyer.

It was my idea, but I did not design or produce the flyers. My involvement was in suggesting that the campaign demonstrate goodwill to the gay community during gay pride. It was my idea, but I did not design or produce the flyers. I did help another intern, a staffer, and a volunteer hand out the flyers.

I think that Romney is a very fair person, and definitely the most competent candidate in the race. There is no question about that. Unlike the other candidates, he holds traditional views about marriage without demonizing a minority. 

The flyer was not an endorsement of gay rights. I interpreted it as more of a sign of goodwill toward fellow people (whether they are gay or straight), which is in stark contrast to Rick Perry and Rick Santorums hateful targeting of minorities. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
