Mitt Romney Disavows 2002 Pride Flyer Supporting Gay Rights


Eric Fehrnstrom, Romney's chief spokesman, tells the HuffPost that flyers claiming Mitt Romney supports Gay Pride that read "All citizens deserve equal tights, regardless of their sexual preference" were not created by Romney during his 2002 run for Governor.

"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," Fehrnstrom said in the spin room after Sunday morning's GOP presidential debate here.

Fehrnstrom said he had no idea who had distributed the flyers. "I never saw them and I never approved them. I'm not quite sure where they came from."

If the flyers look familiar, it's because they surfaced briefly during the 2008 presidential campaign as well.
