Tell Mitt Romney to Fire Frank Now!

Post submitted by Dan Rafter, Former HRC Associate Director of Communications

We’ve often wondered who the Real Mitt Romney is. It’s become increasingly clear that he’s someone who has no problem donating to organizations that seek to demonize our community and having ruthlessly anti-LGBT people hold top positions in his campaign.

We’re talking about Frank VanderSloot, Romney’s National Finance Chair. He's given hundreds of thousands of dollars to anti-LGBT causes, including the Prop 8 battle. He spearheaded a heinous billboard campaign against Idaho Public Television for airing content that "promote[s] the homosexual lifestyle." He even outed a reporter who covered a scandal in the local Boy Scouts troop.

Act now – join us in calling on Mitt Romney to fire VanderSloot and return the money he’s donated to the campaign.

Frank VanderSloot is a bully. If Mitt Romney is serious when he says he has no tolerance for discrimination, he’ll move swiftly to fire VanderSloot. Add your name to the growing chorus now.
