The Courage Campaign and the super PAC American Bridge 21st Century have joined forces to produce “Mitt Gets Worse.” The multimedia campaign seeks to warn LGBT Americans about the dangers that a victory this fall by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) could pose for them and their families, as well as to provide the means for voters to push back against the Romney campaign’s message of intolerance.
American Bridge Communications Director Chris Harris told Raw Story he believes that it’s crucial for voters to understand just how virulently anti-gay a Romney administration would be.
“He’s no Massachusetts moderate,” said Harris. “He’s as far right on this issue as any candidate we’ve seen.”
The “Mitt Gets Worse” — a play on words meant to echo sex columnist and activist Dan Savage’s“It Gets Better” project — website describes the project as “an oral history of Mitt Romney’s efforts to diminish the rights and the freedoms of LGBT Americans, told by the brave people who have fought back against Mitt’s anti-equality agenda.”
