Washington Blade LogoWashington Blade reporter Chris Johnson reports on The Family Leader, an anti-LGBT group in Iowa, which has decided not to require Republican presidential candidates to sign a pledge expressing adamant opposition to marriage equality. Bob Vander Plaats, CEO of The Family Leader, reportedly saw the pledge as “more of a distraction” rather than a benefit. Mitt Romney did not sign the pledge before or after becoming the Republican nominee for the 2012 presidential election. You can read more about the pledge by following this link.
