Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney's vice presidential candidate pick, has consistently voted against legislation supported by the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest LGBT advocacy group.

Ryan has not supported the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), or the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Repeal Act of 2010, as well as many other positions important to HRC and its members.

Ryan received a "zero" ranking for his positions on LGBT legislation in both the 111th Congress and the 109th Congress.

Ryan received 10 points for his positions on LGBT legislation in the 110th Congress, because he did not cast a vote on the Murphy Amendment to National Defense Authorization Act.

The HRC report can be accessed here.
