Boston Herald Coverage
The Boston Herald ran several articles on Mitt Romney today:
- The paper reported that the Conservative PAC Rightmarch.com is accusing Romney of "flip-flopping" on his abortion stance while Governor of Massachusetts. By ordering Catholic hospitals in 2005 to make emergency contraceptives available over the advice of his top public health adviser, the group claims Romney "flip-flopped" because months earlier he had tried block legislation legalizing the emergency contraceptive RU-486 (the "morning after" abortion pill).
- It accused Romney of playing partisan politics during his last few weeks in office. The paper claims that Romney rejected a host of Democratic spending measure while allowing the funding of several similar Republican sponsored projects "slide through."
- The paper claims that Romney pulled strings from Israel in order to organize a Massachusetts State House meeting that considered whether the state should pull pension funds from companies that engage in business with Iran. The article insinuates that the request to convene the meeting was a self-serving attempt by Romney to bolster the five-point plan he had just laid out in a speech at a security conference in Herzliya.
