Romney Donated to Democrats Multiple Times

Prominent Republican and likely presidential contender Mitt Romney has more problems on his hands. There’s lot of evidence out there that Romney held a lot of very moderate, even liberal, positions in his past — and that body of evidence just got larger.

Talking Points Memo reveals that Romney donated a total of $1,500 to three Democrats in 1992 — the same year Romney voted for Paul Tsongas in the Democratic primary.

Of particular concern for Romney is that one of the Democrats is a Mormon — social conservatives are already concerned that Romney’s allegiance to his faith might trump his allegiance to his party. At this point, Romney’s “party” may be completely in doubt.
