Mitt likes to put it) discrimination against black people (until they rescinded the policy under threat of losing their federal tax exempt status), Mitt Romney has told the country another whopper. Romney has been peddling a story that his father, while Governor of Michigan in the 1960s, marched alongside civil rights legend Martin Luther King, Jr. in Grosse Point, Michigan. This was meant to show, I guess, that though it was official church doctrine to view blacks as lesser beings, the Romneys would have none of it. "I saw my father march with Martin Luther King," Romney claimed.
The problem? It didn't happen.
The Romney campaign is now "clarifying" their lie: "On Wednesday, Romney's campaign said his recollections of watching his father, an ardent civil rights supporter, march with King were meant to be figurative."
