The Rudy people delighted in sending around this clip from Boston Legal which others have now picked up. Now it’s just a TV show and we can all have some fun but it’s not exactly accurate. Romney never supported gay marriage. What he did was say in the 1994 debate against Ted Kennedy that he could provide “more effective leadership” on gay rights than Kennedy. In 1994 he also criticized the Boy Scouts for their policy barring gay troop leaders. What earned him the endorsement of the Log Cabin Club of Massachusetts in 2002 was his support for domestic partnership benefits for gay couples. He also supported federal legislation prohibiting discrimination against gays (he no longer does.) From time to time he would indicate approval of adoptions by gay couples. But I think he’s been consistent on opposing gay marriage. So don’t get your news from Boston Legal.
