Gay Romney Donor Jumps Ship

Bill White, CEO of a New York consulting firm, was a Mitt Romney supporter, but the Republican presidential candidate’s recent reaction to Barack Obama’s declaration of support for gay marriage has changed that. White, who is openly gay, wrote a letter to Romney asking him to “please return the maximum contribution that I gave to you last year.” White has contributed to both Democratic and Republican campaigns and most recently donated $2,500 to Romney for President, Inc. In his letter, White referenced Romney’s Liberty University speech in which he reaffirmed his opposition to gay marriage. “I believe that you will do as you now say and try to force a constitutional amendment which would attempt to make my own legal and blessed marriage null and void,” White wrote.
