After getting slammed on Twitter for her endorsement of Mitt Romney for president, actress Stacey Dash sat down with Piers Morgan on CNN to discuss the backlash and explain why she’s casting her vote for Romney.

We agree that Dash should be able to vote for whoever she chooses and not be attacked for it, but quoting Martin Luther King Jr. in explaining your support for Romney is going a little overboard.

Stacey, who voted for President Obama in 2008, told Piers she chose Mitt,

“Not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character.”

Stacey also said she wasn’t offended by the backlash telling Piers,

“I don’t feel offended. I just feel that, you know, as a country, this is my choice. This is the man I want to lead my country.”

Stacey says she made her decision after watching Mitt and Ann Romney on Meet the Press.

“They spoke to me, and they seemed authentic and genuine about what they said about this country, about the need for us to be united and move forward.”
