Matthew Shepard’s Mom Weighs in on Mitt

Matthew Shepard was killed in 1998 for being gay.  Today, his mother Judy said this about Mitt’s attack on a gay student when he was a senior in high school:

“While this may seem like an innocent prank to some, it was an act of torment against a child for being different.  We expect the people we elect to be leaders in the charge against bullying so that all students are afforded the right to learn and grow in an environment free of fear.  This incident calls into question whether Mitt Romney can be an advocate for the nation’s most vulnerable children.”
