Romney "Not Too Concerned" With WaPo Piece On High School Pranks
In an interview on Brian Kilmeade's nationally syndicated radio show, "Kilmeade and Friends," Mitt Romney for the first time addressed allegations in a Washington Post story that he was a mean-spirited high schooler who picked on presumably gay classmates.
"I'm not going be too concerned about their piece. They talked about the fact that I played a lot of pranks in high school and they describe some that you just say to yourself, â€˜well, back in high school I did some dumb things.â€™ And if anybody was hurt by that or offended, obviously I apologize," Romney told Kilmeade.
"I donâ€™t remember that incident," Romney said about the Washington Post piece accusing him of clipping a gay student's hair.
"certainly donâ€™t believe that I, or I canâ€™t speak for other people of course, thought the fellow was homosexual. That was the furtherest thing from our minds back in the 1960s," Romney told FOX News Radio.
