"I feel that I no longer wish to support your presidential campaign and ask that you please return the maximum contribution that I gave to you last year," Bill White wrote in a letter addressed to the former Massachusetts governor and obtained by CNN.
"You have chosen to be on the wrong side of history and I do not support your run for president any longer," White added.

Wrong side of history? LMAO!
Ride or is that famous road?
Yep. Ol’ Shep loves the chocolate starfish
If they’re on the right side, then I don’t wanna be ON it.
It certainly is and the best thing for Romney to do is to continue handling this just as he has so far.
That is, for him to simply say "Marriage is between one man and one woman but this election is really about Obama's failed economic policies."
Per ‘opensecrets dot org’, the only William Whites donating to Romney are:
William J White, Port Lookout NY...or
William Bryan White Jr, Pointe Lookout, NY
...which looks fishy.
Now it gets more interesting...William B White (who is definitely the guy in story, since he is listed as president of the Intrepid Museum) gave a total of $6,900 to Hillary in 2008, and our William J White is also on the Hillary list, giving $6,900.
I’m starting to wonder if this one guy has multiple personalities....according to this NYT article:
(announcing a gay marriage in October 2011), they are father and son.
Its either a poorly written article, or somebody is trying to fool the reader...the article is surely about senior, since it lists his past financial support for candidates dating back as far as Reagan (Junior would have been 17 for Reagan’s first successful run)...and since he is the only Bill White contributor to Romney. Yet, it goes on to give the son’s impressive resume....ah...a ‘composite’.
I checked opensecrets back as far as it would go, and sure enough, junior gave $500 to Bush in 92 and $2,000 to the other Bush in 2003....and $$$ to Hillary in 2005. And senior gave to Hillary in 2006.
Are you able to explain the policy differences between Obama and Romney on gay marriage?
For example, does Romney believe gay marriage should be left up to the states?
I thought maybe it was Betty White’s husband - she just loooooooooves BO. Could be the Bill White that was Mayor of Houston though - I thought he was older than 58. But he’s as Democrat as they come so seriously doubt if he would ever contribute to Romney. He’s too big a fan of BO.
Dear Mr. White.
Thank you for your inquiry. What I have done is instead of returning your generous donation, my campaign alas donated the proceeds to several pro-life groups. It’s for the women and children..
I'll be on the WRONG SIDE of the issue!!!
ha ha what a clown. 4000 years of the Bible, the debauchery of Greece and Rome, 2000 years of Christianity and he thinks history is on his side.
So, what do you call people who thought voting for a conservative candidate at the expense of the other conservative candidate would not result in Romney becoming the nominee?
Shephard didn’t invent the term, gay marriage proponents have been using the fatalistic construction for at least a couple years now.
So now we know Bill White is a pillow-biter.
You forget the theme of gay week... Obama has "evolved."
