Bush Family has ZERO redeeming qualities: Laura Bush Demands She Be Removed From Pro-Gay Marriage Ad
Laura Bush Demands She Be Removed From Pro-Gay Marriage Ad
U.S. former first lady Laura Bush has requested that her spot be removed from a pro-gay marriage advertisement that launched this week. The ad is part of a $1 million print and broadcast media campaign by the Respect for Marriage Coalition.
"Mrs. Bush did not approve of her inclusion in this advertisement nor is she associated in any way with the group that made the ad," Anne MacDonald, a spokeswoman for the former first lady, told The Dallas Morning News Thursday morning.
"When she became aware of the advertisement Tuesday night, we requested that the group remove her from it," MacDonald added.
The commercial features a 2010 clip from the former first lady speaking on her support for gay marriage. She tells CNN's Larry King: "When couples are committed to each other and love each other that they ought to have the same sort of rights that everyone has."
