(The Blaze) News of a pro-gay marriage ad featuring prominent Republicans has certainly sparked intrigue — but so has former First Lady Laura Bush’s request to be removed from the spot.

As TheBlaze reported on Wednesday, Bush is shown along with former Vice President Dick Cheney and former Sec. of State Colin Powell, with all three voicing support for same-sex couples in a TV spot for The Respect for Marriage Coalition. The comments that each made were not tied directly to the group and were derived from past media appearances.

Shortly after the ad gained attention in popular media, Bush’s representatives requested that her name and likeness be removed.
