You ain't slick, Mittens! Romney secretly donated funds to NOM

The HRC has discovered that Mitt Romney secretly donated funds to NOM for Prop 8. But here's the thing, this bastard did it under a Super PAC in Alabama.

The story broke on HuffPo
In 2008, Mitt Romney's political action committee made a $10,000 donation to the National Organization of Marriage at a time when the anti-gay rights organization was seeking repeal of a California law legalizing marriage equality.

While neither the donation nor Romney's opposition to same-sex marriage were a secret, the precise way in which he contributed to NOM remained under tight wraps until Friday. One of the only public comments on the matter came when the former Massachusetts governor's top spokesman, Eric Fehrnstrom, told the Deseret News that Romney supported California's Proposition 8, which would reverse the state law allowing for same-sex marriage, and that he would be writing a check to NOM.

"The governor feels strongly that marriage is an institution between a man and a woman, and one of the most high-profile fights on this subject is happening in California," Fehrnstrom said at the time.
But when Romney eventually made his donation, he did so quietly, and through an unusual channel. Records filed by Romney's Free and Strong America PAC with the Federal Election Commission did not include details of that $10,000 donation.
And he thought no one would know. Real cute, Romney.

I am not surprised by anything the current crop of GOP contenders do. It's becoming increasingly obvious that that if it weren't for our community, the entire gaggle (group of geese) would be speechless.
