Mitt Romney Calls On Jan Brewer To Veto Arizona Anti-Gay Bill

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney came out Tuesday against Arizona's controversial anti-gay legislation known as SB 1062, calling on Gov. Jan Brewer (R) to veto it.

SB 1062 would allow businesses in Arizona to refuse service to individuals on the grounds of "religious freedom," effectively allowing them to discriminate against same-sex couples. The state legislature passed the bill last week, and the governor now has until the end of Saturday to sign or veto it. If she does nothing, it automatically becomes law.

Romney expressed his opposition in a tweet Monday afternoon:

.@GovBrewer: veto of #SB1062 is right.

— Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) February 25, 2014

Over the years, Romney has spoken out against discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals, saying in 1994 that stopping such discrimination should be a "mainstream concern." But he opposed a federal law barring workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity and was against same-sex marriage.

The Arizona legislation has generated widespread opposition.

The state's two Republican senators, Jeff Flake and John McCain, called on Brewer to veto it, and major corporations like Marriott, Apple and American Airlines oppose it.

Three Republican state senators who voted for the bill -- including one cosponsor of the legislation -- have come out and said they made a mistake and want Brewer to veto it.

The White House has not taken a public position on the legislation. On Tuesday, White House press secretary Jay Carney reaffirmed that President Barack Obama supports equality for LGBT people, but told reporters that "as a practice," the White House steers clear of weighing in on state bills.

I always thought of AZ as such a peaceful, loving, open place. Mit Cactus. But I guess I was thinking more of Sedona.

He's afraid that regular Christians would use it as a way to discriminate against Mormons.

Jan's son is a rapist. She got him off by putting him in a mental institution. Her qualifications: community college x-ray technician. She's also the bitch who point her finger in the face of the President.

Arizona = Texass

Dumbasses should have learned when the NFL took away the Super Bowl for their opposition to a Martin Luther King holiday.

Mitt is an insider and knows how responsible the Mormons are for this bill. He knows the facts will come out sooner or later and smear the baby raping Mormons with the their breeding stock wives.

I am telling you the truth, Mormons control the agenda in Arizona and always have. The policy center that actually wrote SB1060 is a conservative Mormon organization.

R4, Brewer was in the State Legislature for years and was the Sec. of State in Arizona. She may be an ass, but she is qualified for political office.
