FEC File:
Ann Romney = Executive of Romney for President

Longtime Democratic strategist and former chair of the board of directors for the Human Rights Campaign Hilary Rosen sparked a controversy last night on CNN, when she said Ann Romney had "never worked a day in her life." The Mitt Romney campaign wasted no time firing back, saying the presidential candidate's wife worked plenty as a mother of five boys.

Yes, every mother is a working woman just raising a kid regardless of having work outside of the home and I think Rosen has given the American electorate another chance to debate women's issues, while comparing the Democratic and Republican policies that affect women.

I want to add my two cents about Ann Romney and how in addition to being the mother of her boys, she's also been an executive for a short time in recent years according to Federal Election Commission records.

During 2007, she made two donations to Republican James Ogonowski's bid for the U.S. Congress and the FEC records show she listed her occupation as an executive of Romney for President. For all of her many other donations, her occupation is given as homemaker.

I'm pointing out what Ann Romney's FEC file shows regarding her having two occupations listed so we all have a fuller picture of the woman who wants to be First Lady in January 2013.
