Romneys Richard Grenell Resigns

The Washington Post reported that the openly gay Richard Grenell had been hounded from the campaign by anti-gay conservatives.

Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades said in a statement that
Grenell, hired last month, decided to leave for personal reasons that he
did not specify.

“We are disappointed that Ric decided to resign from the campaign for
his own personal reasons. We wanted him to stay because he had superior
qualifications for the position he was hired to fill,” Rhoades said. –  SERIOUSLY? You hired him!  Stand behind him for God’s sake and speak the TRUTH!

The Post’s “Right Turn” column quoted a statement from
Grenell that said his ability to “speak clearly and forcefully on the
issues has been greatly diminished by the hyper-partisan discussion of
personal issues that sometimes comes from a presidential campaign.”
