Not So Nice

Romney Apologizes for Alleged Bullying

Mitt Romney apologized Thursday for his behavior during his teenage years after a report came out in The Washington Post that painted him as a bully during his prep-school days. According to several former classmates, Mitt, so distressed by one quiet, oft-teased, presumed gay student’s unconventional hairdo, led a mission to capture the boy and cut his hair as the boy “his eyes filling with tears, screamed for help.” Romney said he does not recall the specific incident, but he said that he “participated in a lot of dumb hijinks and pranks during high school and some might have gone too far.”
