Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has been accused of impersonating:
a conservative; a jobs creator; a dog lover; even a human being! But, Romney’s high school and university years spent dressing in drag as a police officer is the story of the day!
According to Joe Conason, the editor-in-chief of The National Memo, when Mitt Romney was a college freshman, he told fellow residents at his Stanford University dormitory that he sometimes went in drag as a police officer! A crime in many states, including Michigan and California, where he then lived. Romney had the uniform on display as proof.
Robin Madden, who was a Stanford freshman, recalled how the incident began when Romney called him and two or three other residents into his room, saying, “Come up, I want to show you something.” When they entered Romney’s room, “Romney had laid out on his bed a Michigan State Trooper’s uniform.”
Madden recalled in a recent interview, “He told us that he had gotten the uniform from his father,” George Romney, then the Governor of Michigan, whose security detail was staffed by uniformed troopers. “He told us that he was using it to pull over drivers on the road. He also had a red flashing light that he would attach to the top of his white Rambler.”
Mitt Romney began dressing in drag as a cop back in his Cranbrook School days in Bloomfield Hills, MI. This is the same, elite preparatory high school where Romney bullied a fellow student who so offended him for being gay that Romney attacked the young man, cutting off his hair with a pair of scissors.
However, following his sophomore year at Stanford, Romney departed the prestigious Ivy League university. Over the next two years, he served as a Mormon missionary living in a swank palace in France, thus avoiding the obligation to wear a different uniform — in Vietnam.
