Kansas Attorney General Kris Kobach, an advisor to Mitt Romney on immigration policy, on Tuesday compared gay people to drug users and polygamists.

Kobach, an RNC delegate, made his remarks during a debate on the 2012 Republican Platform in Tampa, Florida.

In response to a Nevada delegate's proposal to add language in support of civil unions for gay and lesbian couples, Kobach said: “I oppose this amendment, I think the wording is too broad. Especially the last sentence: 'As long as there are no infringements on the rights of others, It is not the role of government to judge.' Well, our government routinely judges situations where you might regard people completely affecting themselves like, for example, the use of controlled substances, like, for example, polygamy that is voluntarily entered into. We condemn those activities even though they're not hurting other people, at least directly.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
