FEHRNSTROM RESPONDS. Governor Mitt Romney's communications director, Eric Fehrnstrom, sends an e-mail to Media Log about yesterday's link to Bay Windows. Fehrnstrom writes:
1) Governor Romney hired Katherine Abbott. Her sexual orientation had nothing to do with the decision to bring her on board, and it had nothing to do with her departure.
2) John Wagner is Governor Romney's commissioner of the state welfare department, and is married to a same sex partner. Ditto for Mitchell Adams, the executive director of the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative, whose members are appointed by the Governor. Both of them are doing excellent jobs.
