Coakley blasts Romney for blocking 2006 bullying guide

Attorney General Martha Coakley Tuesday denounced the administration of former Governor Mitt Romney for blocking the 2006 publication of an anti-bullying guide for Massachusetts schools.

The Globe reported earlier Tuesday that the governor’s administration stifled the 120-page report because it objected to references to ``bisexual’’ and ``transgender’’ students. The Romney team withheld the guide as the governor was gearing up for his first run for the White House and was beginning to woo social conservatives in the Republican Party.
