Washington, D.C. —
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has added Richard Grenell, 45, to his campaign team. That wouldn't be a big news, except that Grenell is openly gay.
Grenell has served as spokesman for the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and was appointed by Ambassador John Danforth in 2004 to serve as an alternative representative of the United States to the U.N. Security Council, SouthFloridaGayNews.com reported.
Conservative talk show host Bryan Fischer immediately zeroed in on whether Grenell is monogamous or not.
"He's in this long-standing relationship, but I've had those who've come out of the gay community tell me personally, 'Look, when I was in the gay community I had a partner and we told everybody we were monogamous but we had a deal that we could fool around on the side all we wanted to,'" Fischer said.
Romney's campaign had no comment.
