According to Death + Taxes mag, this is the shit that GOP presidential candidate pulled when he was a young college lass.
Robin Madden, one of Romney’s former Stanford pals recalls this bizarro behavior. “He told us that he had gotten the uniform from his father [George Romney]. 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. We thought it was all pretty weird. We all thought, ‘Wow, that’s pretty creepy.’ And after that, we didn’t have much interaction with him.”
George Romney, Mitt Romney’s dad was the Governor of Michigan at the time, and his security detail was staffed by uniformed troopers.
Also, it wasn’t just strangers that Romney would pull over for funsies; he’d pull the stunt on his friends while they were on dates. Lame.
Is it just me or does Romney have a Napoleon complex? I’m not sure how tall the dude is, but you get what I’m sayin’.
