Weekly Awkward Silence Award: Romney Campaign Refuses to take Position on Lilly Ledbetter Act
On a conference call this morning, a reporter asked if Mitt Romney supports the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which gives women more freedom to sue employers over pay discrimination. The campaign’s response: we’ll get back to you on that.
Listen to the uncomfortable silence for yourself:
It appears Mitt Romney’s “rehab” with women voters isn’t going so well. In the midst of trying to shift the conversation from women’s health to women in the economy (and paint the Obama administration’s economic policies as bad for women), the campaign can’t even say Romney supports equal pay for women. It’s no wonder he has a problem with women in the polls.
