Conservative activist Brian Camenker said he met with Romney aides last week, showing them photos from last year's parade, and urged them to abolish the panel.
''Last year [at the parade] they had boys in fishnet stockings and high heels parading down Boylston Street," Camenker said. ''They had boys dressed as women embracing. We presented stuff, and they were visibly sickened by what they saw. I said, basically, this group has to go. It's so manifestly destructive to kids that you have to get rid of it. They said they'd do something."
Allowing the commission to remain in existence demonstrates ''pure cowardice on the governor's part," he said. ''This shows that Romney probably doesn't have what it takes to run the country if he can't even make a decision about this."
