Ann Romney Backs Out Of Values Voters Summit

The Family Research Council has a particularly manipulative way of advertising its Values Voters Summit, which takes place this week in Washington, DC. The hate group lists all of the speakers it has invited, then gives them asterisks when they confirm that they are attending. Apparently this tactic even applies to their hour-by-hour itinerary, which is how Ann Romney became listed as a featured speaker. But now, despite Mitt Romney’s campaign has backed away from the invitation and made it clear that Ann will not be present, such that she has even been removed from the itinerary entirely. Vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) is still scheduled to speak, among other notable Republicans. The following unconfirmed speakers remain on FRC’s agenda: Kirk Cameron, Mike Huckabee, Todd Starnes, and Glenn Beck.
