Mitt Romney On Homosexuals in Boy Scouts (1994)


In 1994, Romney billed himself as a champion for gay rights. He also served on the board of the Boy Scouts of America, which discriminates against homosexuals. When asked during a debate what he had done to help gays in the Boy Scouts, Mitt abdicated his responsibility and gave a non-answer.
