Sexist Millionaire Set To Back Romney
Millionaire Foster Friess told Politico that he’s “going to be of help in whatever way I can” to the Romney campaign after originally backing Rick Santorum during the Republican primaries.
Friess reportedly may help to bankroll the multi-million dollar campaign against Obama headed by former Bush team member Karl Rove.
Appearing on MSNBC in February, Friess told Andrea Mitchell he didn’t understand the controversy over contraception coverage because “this contraception thing, my gosh, it’s so inexpensive.” He continued: “Back in my days, they’d use Bayer aspirin for contraceptives. The gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly.”
The comment was roundly condemned, even by Santorum who described it as “a bad off-color joke.”
A recent Washington Post/ABC News poll showed a double-digit gap in support from women between Obama and Romney. It remains to be seen if Friess’ support will help that.
