Mitt Romney and pornography

Romney Criticized for Hotel Pornography

Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney, who rails against the “cesspool” of pornography, is being criticized by social conservatives who argue that he should have tried to halt hardcore hotel movie offerings during his near-decade on the Marriott board.

Two anti-pornography crusaders, as well as two conservative activists of the type Romney is courting, say the distribution of such graphic adult movies runs counter to the family image cultivated by Romney, the Marriotts and their shared Mormon faith.

“Marriott is a major pornographer. And even though he may have fought it, everyone on that board is a hypocrite for presenting themselves as family values when their hotels offer 70 different types of hardcore pornography,” said Phil Burress, president of Citizens for Community Values, an anti-pornography group based on Ohio.

Citizens for Community Values isn’t only an anti-pornography group. They were responsible for Ohio’s marriage amendment in 2004 and other anti-gay legislation and court cases, like the one that used the marriage amendment to say domestic violence law doesn’t protect unmarried gay or straight couples.

It’s nice to see them beating up one of their own for a change.

Mitt, you know what they say about lying down with dogs, or maybe in your case it’s “being tied to the car roof with dogs.”
