Romney Friend Says Campaign Wants Him to Counter Prank Accusations - PoliticalTiger - 05-10-2012 05:24 PM
One of Mitt Romney’s closest friends and a high school classmate has been asked by the Romney campaign to come out and offer “supporting remarks” in defense of the candidate following a Washington Post article that described pranks at the Cranbrook School in the 1960s that focused on a student who was “presumed” to be gay. Romney has denied that the pranks were targeted.
White, in an interview with ABC News, said that he is “still debating” whether he will help the campaign, remarking, “It’s been a long time since we’ve been pals.” While the Post reports White as having “long been bothered” by the haircutting incident,” he told ABC News he was not present for the prank, in which Romney is said to have forcefully cut a student’s long hair and was not aware of it until this year when he was contacted by the Washington Post.
According to White, he knows of several other classmates that have also been approached by the campaign to counter the article. White declined to name the fellow classmates.
One former classmate and old friend of Romney’s – who refused to be identified by name – said there are “a lot of guys” who went to Cranbrook who have “really negative memories” of Romney’s behavior in the dorms, behavior this classmate describes as “like Lord of the Flies.”

I hope he doesn't do it, especially if he's "long been bothered about the incident."

Wouldn't it be spectacular if Rmoney was "swiftboated" by this incident from a group of his classmates who decide to get together and speak out.

of who you kick on the way up, because they will kick you twice as hard on your way down.
I shall now call Willard Romney "Lumpy" from this day forward.

Willard has such a high opinion of himself he thinks his old classmates do too. Surprise.
