Mass. Gov. Attempts To Abolish Gay Youth Commission
http://www.365gay.com/Newscon06/05/051106romney.htm

Gov. Mitt Romney briefly attempted to abolish the Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth on Thursday because of its association with a gay pride rally, but quickly reversed himself, the chairwoman of the commission said.

A spokesman for the governor denied that Romney issued an executive order abolishing the commission but acknowledged the governor considered taking that action.
Commission chairwoman Kathleen Henry said she received a call shortly before 3 p.m. from Romney chief of staff Beth Myers saying that Romney had issued an executive order abolishing the commission.

That sparked an uproar from lawmakers and supporters of the commission, which prompted a second call from Myers just after 5 p.m., Henry said, telling her that Romney had decided against abolishing the commission, but would instead call for it to refocus on helping gay and lesbian youth.
