Report: Romney Aides 'Privately' Told Log Cabin He'd Support ENDA
Mitt Romney’s campaign team reportedly privately promised the Log Cabin Republicans that he would support the Employment Non-Discrimination Act as president but did not want the stance made public, according to The Nation.

Log Cabin announced its “qualified” endorsement of Romney today. Nation contributor Ben Adler dissects the endorsement on the magazine’s Web site, where he writes, “Romney’s greatest asset as a politician is his total lack of integrity, honesty or consistency. He is perfectly willing to go before the religious right one day and pledge fealty to them, and the Log Cabin Republicans the next day to do the same. And, apparently, that is what he has done, in private.”

Adler says that when he pressed Log Cabin executive director R. Clarke Cooper to explain why the group’s leaders believe they can work with Romney on ENDA, which would ban job discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, “Cooper blurted out, ‘Have you met with Romney’s domestic policy team?’ And therein lies the answer to how Romney secured LCR’s endorsement. His advisors have privately assured LCR that Romney supports ENDA, even though he so fears the wrath of the religious right that he will not adopt this position in public.”

Is there nothing worth telling the truth about for Willard? ENDA would be so important and you know damned well he'll never go near it. The log cabin pubs ought to know better.
