Romney Camp Says He Opposed Lilly Ledbetter Act In 2009

Romney adviser Ed Gillespie says the candidate would not have signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Play Act had he been president in 2009.

The statement from Gillespie is the furthest that the Romney campaign has gone in detailing the candidate’s position on the law, which allows women greater opportunity to sue over pay inequity at the workplace. Previously, the governor’s campaign has said that he would not repeal the Lilly Ledbetter Act, which was the first bill President Barack Obama signed into law, while leaving unanswered whether or not he would have signed it had he been president at the time.
