Romney Should be Ashamed of Association with Frank VanderSloot
Washington – The Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization, today called on Mitt Romney to fire his National Finance Chair Frank Vandersloot who has a long history of anti-LGBT extremism. Writing recently in Salon.com, Glenn Greenwald details VanderSloot’s radical positions and points out how Mitt Romney has been the beneficiary of his largess – including nearly $1 million to the pro-Romney Super-PAC.
“Frank VanderSloot is a bully who uses his vast resources to vilify and demonize lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people,” said HRC Communications Vice President Fred Sainz. “Mitt Romney should be ashamed to be associated with him and should immediately relieve him of his campaign position and return all of the money that has funded his race.”
HRC has launched an online action allowing fair-minded Americans to contact the Romney campaign and demand VanderSloot be fired and his campaign contributions returned.
Among VanderSloot’s anti-LGBT actions:
The Human Rights Campaign is America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
