Robin Madden recounted a story that Mitt Romney once brought a group of classmates up to his Stanford university dorm room. he had a Michigan State Trooper’s uniform on his bed.
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.
Madden’s recollection was confirmed by his wife, Susan, who said:
A magistrate at Cranbrook, Romney's boarding school, described a famous prank in which Romney dressed up in a police uniform and a badge, and placed a police light on top of his vehicle, He then pulled over a car full of friends on a double date.
Graham McDonald, a former friend of Mittens helped him plan the joke. He told the Philadelphia Inquirer:
As planned, Romney pulled their car over, demanded the vehicle registration, and asked for the keys to the trunk - where he 'found' the bottle of bourbon McDonald had taken from his dad and planted as part of the ruse.
He told me and my friend to get out with him, and that he was taking us in. The idea was to spook the girls.
