Was it his personal style — or his lifestyle?

Conservative, outspoken, even confrontational, Richard Grenell was presumed GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s national security and foreign policy spokesman for less than a month.

Accused of sexism for snarky tweets about the appearance and style of women like Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, talk show host Rachel Maddow and Callista Gingrich, Grenell had strong support from policy conservatives like former UN ambassador John Bolton — but his own sexual preference was a multiculural bridge too far for Republican social conservatives, who reportedly exerted pressure on the Romney campaign to throw him on the fire.
