In a new Associated Press (AP) article, Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign re-affirmed Romney’s position from the 1990s that the Boy Scouts should be open to all participants, "regardless of sexual orientation," while also saying that the Boy Scouts had the right to make its own decision on the matter.
From writer David Crary’s AP story:
Back in 1994, during a political debate in Massachusetts, Romney said this: "I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue. I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation."
A Romney spokeswoman, Andrea Saul, said in an e-mail that this remains Romney's position today.
