Ha! Never noticed. Could be. I wonder what that article was about. Would be interesting to know.

I went to that site (shudder) looking for an archive (found none).

It's interesting that I did find this, searching on "Romney":

Romney fed the hate
BY SUE O'CONNELL | JANUARY 25, 2012

Tax returns show contributions to anti-gay groups.

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s charitable foundation gave $35,000 to antigay groups in 2010, including $10,000 to the Massachusetts Family Institute. Massachusetts’ citizens are familiar with the Institute’s efforts to continue discrimination against the transgender community by running ads claiming that the passage of the trans rights bill would lead to crime in public bathrooms. The Massachusetts Family Institute is also the organization that sponsored the 2007 anti-same-sex marriage amendment.

CNN has detailed reports on Romney’s charitable giving and notes that $25,000 from Romney’s foundation went to the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty. The Becket Fund defended the Mormon Church against lawsuits after the church’s involvement in financially backing California’s Proposition 8 was revealed.

The contributions are in stark contrast to the face Romney’s presents during debates and campaign stops. Romney has repeatedly stated that he will not discriminate.
