This clip is worth watching from beginning to the very end (the Dish posted a shorter version that didn't include the impassioned ending). You see a man meet a machine:
Andrew Kaczynski investigates Romney's "evolution" on gay rights. The campaign has disavowed a 2002 Gay Pride flyer championing equal rights on behalf of Romney and his running mate Kerry Healey. If they could airbrush history to remove the evidence, they would. But Josh Barro, a former Romney volunteer, says the Romney camp is full of it:
A former intern to Mitt Romney publicly stated on Monday that as a candidate for governor in 2002, the Massachusetts Republican did authorize and disseminate flyers championing equal rights for gay citizens. The statement, made by the Manhattan Institute's spokesman Eric Ferhnstrom told The Huffington Post on Sunday.
Barro, who served as an intern on Romney's gubernatorial campaign, explained that on Pride weekend in 2002, the campaign sent about a half-dozen interns to a "post-parade festival on Boston Common" to hand out flyers proclaiming that "all citizens deserve equal rights, regardless of their sexual preference."
"The thing was organized by a full-time staffer," Barro added. Ferhnstrom, who served as communications director on that same campaign, told The Huffington Post on Sunday that the Romney's election team had not been involved in producing or handing out the flyers and that the former Massachusetts governor shouldn't be held accountable for them. "I don't know where those pink flyers came from. I was the communications director on the 2002 campaign. I don't know who distributed them … I never saw them and I was the communications director," Ferhnstrom said.
What's more, Romney almost marched in the parade. Barro points to a "long list of the outrageously nice things Mitt Romney has done for gay people" (from the perspective of a far-right conservative group in Massachusetts).
