Republican Mitt Romney is trying shrug off a Washington Post report that he bullied a gay classmate in prep school.
A former classmate told the Post that Romney was incensed by another classmate’s long hair and led a posse of students to cut the boy’s hair as the boy screamed for help. The young man was thought to be gay.
