What Grenell's Resignation Says About Romney

The New York Times provides an inside look at the resignation of Richard Grenell, the openly gay former national security spokesman for Mitt Romney, attributing it to the "unforgiving churn of election-year politics."

"Mr. Grenell's short-lived and rocky tenure as Mr. Romney's foreign policy spokesman is the story of how halting attempts by the campaign to manage its relationship with the most conservative quarter of the Republican Party left an aide feeling badly marginalized and ostracized."

Said one Republican adviser: "It's not that the campaign cared whether Ric Grenell was gay. They believed this was a nonissue. But they didn't want to confront the religious right."
