Washington Post Hit Piece On Romney… Embellished?
One of the “witnesses” used in the Washington Post hit piece seems to have thrown a wrench in the narrative. Stu White, a Romney friend, has this to say:
White was not present for the prank, in which Romney is said to have forcefully cut a student’s long hair and was not aware of it until this year when he was contacted by the Washington Post.
Read that again.
Stu White was not present for the prank and wasn’t even aware of it until the Washington Post contacted him THIS YEAR about it.
No big deal, you say? Well it is a big deal because this is what the Washington Post said as it relates to Stu White:
“I always enjoyed his pranks,” said Stu White, a popular friend of Romney’s who went on to a career as a public school teacher and has long been bothered by the Lauber incident. “But I was not the brunt of any of his pranks.”
Emphasis mine. The Lauber incident is the one where Romney cut Lauber’s hair.
Now, how was Stu White long “bothered” by an incident in 1965 that he didn’t know of until 2012? Hmm?
Someone has some explaining to do.
