It’s not only low for a Romney backer to accuse the Thompson campaign of buying the NRLC endorsement, it’s laughable given Romney’s own relationship with Massachusetts Citizens for Life. If you recall, Romney accepted the group’s endorsement in his 1994 Senate race, then in 2002, emphatically denied he had ever accepted it, and ran away from the organization in a debate. The group was critical of him throughout his time as governor, but then Romney gave them a $15,000 check, and his wife Ann –who had previously donated to Planned Parenthood–now serves as co-chairwoman for them. Suddenly, they endorsed Romney for president, and he regularly touts their support in speeches and debates.
