Laura Bush wants to be removed from pro gay marriage ad
Posted by Staff
The Hill reports:

Former first lady Laura Bush has asked the Respect for Marriage Coalition to remove her from an advertisement that uses politicians from both parties to push for the legalization of gay marriage.

“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, wrote in a statement obtained Thursday by CNN.“When she became aware of the advertisement Tuesday night, we requested that the group remove her from it.”

In the ad, Bush is shown saying she believes that "when couples are committed to each other and love each other then they ought to have the same sort of rights that everyone has." Facebook Fark Furl
