Brownback Attacks Romney On The Boy Scouts
Sam Brownback has a new press release out attacking Mitt Romney for his pro-gay stances in his 1994 Senate campaign, specifically that he supported service by gay Boy Scout leaders (though he did say the organization had the legal right to exclude them). "Romney's openness to gay scout leaders conflicts with the Scout Oath, which requires Scouts to be 'morally straight,'" the release declares. Romney spokesman Kevin Madden shot back, via David Brody: "Some other campaigns will resort to negative attacks and distortions which is an unfortunate reflection on their campaign's conduct. Governor Romney has been a supporter of the Boy Scouts and has said he supports their right to decide scouting policies."
