Richard Grenell was Mitt Romney's foreign policy spokesman until Tuesday, when he resigned from position in the campaign. Grenell is gay, and faced opposition from social conservatives who were loyal to Romney but uncomfortable with a homosexual staffer. And his resignation has provoked a firestorm of criticism aimed at the Republican party and the Romney campaign. 

Dorian Davis is a journalism professor at Marymount Manhattan College and writer for WNYC. He tells us about the case on Grenell and why the Romney campaign made such a misstep in this situation.
