Romney’s Aide Impersonates State Trooper

It’s kind of early for me to get into full-on campaign-lies mode, but I couldn’t pass up this story. From the Boston Globe: Romney aide is the focus of probe.

State Police are investigating one of Mitt Romney’s top campaign aides for allegedly impersonating a trooper by calling a Wilmington company and threatening to cite the driver of a company van for erratic driving, according to two law enforcement sources familiar with the probe.

Jay Garrity, who is director of operations on Romney’s presidential campaign and a constant presence at his side, became the primary target of the investigation, according to one of the sources, after authorities traced the cellphone used to make the call back to him. The investigation comes three years after Garrity, while working for Romney in the State House, was cited for having flashing lights and other police equipment in his car without proper permits.

So, not a campaign lie, technically speaking. But an interesting case of repeated lying by someone active in the campaign.

    hey no biggee!
    Romney is impersonating a politician with actual convictions (and not criminal convictions!) Does Mr Magic Underpants actually hold ANY position that doesn’t change depending upon who he is pandering to? answer: no

    If he is the Rethuggle candidate, he won’t carry his ‘home’ state of Massachusetts.
