Breaking news: According to Mitt Romney's neighbors, Mitt Romney is not a cool neighbor to have. OK, we didn't actually think he would be, but we guess here's confirmation if you were wondering.
In a recent New York Times article detailing the Republican presidential candidate's three-bedroom beachside La Jolla, California home, apparently Romney is a shitty neighbor for a number of reasons: One, he's trying to "quadruple" the size of the home, and construction is always the bane of everyone's existence. Two, he'll call you out if you're smoking pot on the beach (keep in mind, this is California) like some protector of the people or something.
From the article:
The Romneys rarely entertain neighbors, but they have tried to weave themselves into the fabric of local life. Mr. Romney and his wife take regular walks around La Jolla, exchanging pleasantries with fellow strollers and occasionally enforcing the law. A young man in town recalled that Mr. Romney confronted him as he smoked marijuana and drank on the beach last summer, demanding that he stop.
The issue appears to be a recurring nuisance for the Romneys. Mr. Quint, who lives on the waterfront near Mr. Romney, said that a police officer had asked him, on a weekend when the candidate was in town, to report any pot smoking on the beach. The officer explained to him that “your neighbors have complained,” Mr. Quint recalled. “He was pretty clear that it was the Romneys.”
Bro, in the wake of bath salts making people bite other people's faces off, maybe a little pot and some booze isn't so bad in comparison. Come on.
