Romney "went to great lengths to bury" 1981 arrest
"MITT ROMNEY: AN INSIDE LOOK AT THE MAN AND HIS POLITICS," by R.B. Scott, Globe Pequot Press, $16.95, 231 pages
After revealing in the preface that he is a distant cousin of Mitt Romney and disclosing details of a personal meeting with Romney where they discussed sensitive LDS Church business, Mormon author R.B. Scott delivers a highly critical review of Romney's rise to power.
Starting with a candid story about Romney being arrested in 1981, Scott describes how the future Mormon bishop, stake president and Massachusetts governor was charged with disorderly conduct stemming from a disagreement with a park ranger over a boat registration.
Scott also details how Romney went to great lengths to bury his arrest record during his campaigns for political office, but was very open and honest about it while speaking to wards or congregations of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Boston.
Romney's handling of Salt Lake's Olympic scandal is one area where Scott seems to pull no punches. ...
4. I aks because I've been arrested twice for somethine someon ELSE did!
One time it was a police officer who beat me and arrested me for assault and another was a psychopath attacking me. Under no circumstances was I to blame for either of these arrests, but I have an arrest record now. So I'm sensitive to these arrest record claims... means nothing if there were no charges and no conviction.
As for hiding them, well, any politician would do that on either side. I say hang him with a strong noose, metaphorically speaking, not a loose goose... lol
Oh, and thanks, I'm still here. Still cannot stomach that abortion on the other side... ugh! :^/
