Mitt Romney’s Weird Power Trips

We all make mistakes in our youth, drinking, drugs, and wild parties. But have you ever dressed up like a policeman and pulled people over? We thought it was strange when a young man reported a 2011 incident in California where Romney approached him on the beach and asked that he stop smoking marijuana and drinking in public. Apparently the man felt Romney was about to initiate a “citizen’s arrest” for his public display of illegal activities – a bit of a power trip for sure.

It got even weirder when we heard reports of some strange Romney behavior during his college days. Romney, who claims to have only drank and smoked a cigarette one time, apparently liked to dress up like a policeman and pull people over for random violations. According to TV producer Robin Madden, a former friend of Romney during his time at Stanford:

He told us that he had gotten the uniform from his father, George Romney, then the Governor of Michigan, whose security detail was staffed by uniformed troopers. 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. We thought it was all pretty weird. We all thought, ‘Wow, that’s pretty creepy.’ And after that, we didn’t have much interaction with him.

Romney has not confirmed this report of his strange behavior.
