Skip to comments.Montana Gov: Romney’s father ‘born into polygamy commune in Mexico’
Posted on 04/20/2012 10:15:06 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, a moderate Democrat, says that likely Republican nominee Mitt Romney may have trouble in the general election because his father was born on a polygamy commune in Mexico, the Daily Beast reports.
Schweitzer told the news site that it would be a tall order to position Hispanics to vote for Romney, which he said was kinda ironic considering his family came from a polygamy commune in Mexico. However, Schweitzer continued, Romney is unlikely to talk about his family coming from a polygamy commune in Mexico because women are not great fans of polygamy, 86 percent were not great fans of polygamy.
I am not alleging by any stretch that Romney is a polygamist and approves of [the] polygamy lifestyle, but his father was born into [a] polygamy commune in Mexico, he continued.
Romneys father, the late George Romney, was born in Mexico at a settlement founded by Mormons who had fled the United States anti-polygamy laws. He went on to become the CEO of the American Motor Company, a popular Governor of Michigan and the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under President Richard Nixon.
George Romneys parents were in a monogamous marriage and moved back to the United States when he was still a child. The Romney campaign did not comment on Schweitzers remarks, which were promptly condemned by President Obamas re-election team.

Are you starting to get a handle on the antipathy between Perry and Romney yet?
Hey Schweitzer.......are you aware who POTUS is (at least who he says he is)? Someone needs to send this doofus the Obama book.
I yearn for the days when the Rocky Mountain West was not infested with liberals.
they really don’t want to go down the daddy road. BHO sr wrote some pretty extreme stuff during his academic “career”.
not to mention he was something of a predator on american college campuses.
and daddy #2 ate lassie.
the democrats just aren’t thinking things through these days.
What does Perry have to do with this?
Wow, this is even worse then cupcakegate!
Polygamy was the norm in Kenya also. Where’s the story?
Obamas dad had a spear,,, and ran away in a panic when there was an eclipse.
I think we’ve seen that it does not matter where your dad was born if you want to run for office.
Uh oh, everybody! It's the "moderate" Democrats that are saying this. We're in big trouble!
And Obamas other dad was a dog eating Muslim,,, not the marxist Kenyan one,, the Indonesian one.
Well,there's the first lie at least...anyone with an IQ above 40 knows that "moderates" were purged from the Rat Party at least 30 years ago.
ROTFL!!! There is no such thing. You've got a better chance of finding a Bigfoot than you do "a moderate DemocRAT" these days.
Does the 0bama camp really want to open up the can of worms re ancestry and sins of fathers? So Romney’s dad was “born” into a polygamist culture? So was 0bama’s dad. 0bama’s dad was born into a polygamist Muslim culture and tried to practice the same when he knocked up a teenage girl while he was still married to a wife in Kenya.
This is the dog deal all over again.
Apparently forgot that 0bama's alledged father was also a polygamist.
