Former George Romney aide criticizes Mitt
By David Shepardson
Detroit News Washington Bureau

Washington — A former aide to Michigan Gov. George Romney harshly criticized Romney's son, Mitt.

In an essay mailed to journalists, Walt De Vries — who was a campaign strategist to the late George Romney — says the younger Romney "would say and do anything to close a deal — or an election. George Romney's constant mantra to those in and around his campaigns and his gubernatorial staff: 'As you campaign, so shall you govern.'"

The New York Times posted a copy of the memo on its website.

De Vries contrasted Mitt Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, to his father. "George Romney was a political risk-taker. He fought for a new Michigan constitution that was narrowly approved, overhauled the administrative structure of the executive branch in Michigan and battled repeatedly for an income tax."
