Did young creepy psycho Mitt Romney Impersonate A Police Officer? Another Witness Says Yes

http://www.nationalmemo.com/did-young-mitt-romney-impersonate-a-police-officer-another-witness-says-yes/

When Mitt Romney was a college freshman, he told fellow residents of his Stanford University dormitory that he sometimes disguised himself as a police officer – a crime in many states, including Michigan and California, where he then lived. And he had the uniform on display as proof.

So recalls Robin Madden, who had also just arrived as a freshman, the startling 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, “and laid out on his bed was a Michigan State Trooper’s uniform.”


The story doesn't stop there. Madden went on to specifically recount the tale told by Romney. He claims Mitt said "he had gotten the uniform from his father. 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.”

Impersonating a police officer is a crime in every state, including California where Stanford University is located. Specifically it carries a penalty of up to a year in jail, and a $15,000 fine.

1. Creepy beyond words...

I just find this creepy beyond what words can express...

Reading the above article, I can't help but be reminded of Ted Bundy. IIRC, didn't Bundy also impersonate authority figures in order to lure women into his trap?

I cannot help but wonder if there are women out there that he raped or if there are some long lost women buried somewhere that their families have no idea where they are or what happened to them.

Is anyone else as freaked out by this as I am?

6. Yep..reminds me of Law and Order SVU....

Gotta wonder if he did more than just what the article says.

Some good videos including Lawrence O Donnell talking about this back in June of this year.

5. The question that comes to mind immediately is

Why? To what end?

Even if he pulled people over "just" to intimidate them and "have a little fun," that is SO twisted.

Mitt is one sick mo fo. Just ask Ann.
