A Utah man remains on presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s state finance committee despite his ties to an organization that a lawsuit alleges abuses children.
Robert Lichfield, who helped launch the Worldwide Association of Specialty Schools (WWASPS), held a fundraiser for Romney in southern Utah earlier this year that raked in more than $300,000 and has been a top financial supporter of the former Massachusetts governor and other Republicans in recent years.
Creepy, you bet.
If Flap were Romney, he would deep six this donor and start returning money – and QUICK.
And Flap has already raised the issue about Romney’s Utah fundraising operation.
Overall, Romney has raised $2.7 million in Utah for his presidential campaign, far more than any other candidate, according to data compiled by the Federal Election Commission (FEC). Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has raised the second most in the state, $113,000.
These Utah/Mormon cult stories WILL start to stick if Romney continues to ignore the issue.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will return to one of his favorite – and most lucrative – fundraising spots this weekend: Utah. Romney has scheduled a $500-per-person fundraising breakfast Saturday in the EnergySolutions Arena, hosted by Jazz owner Larry Miller. Later that day he will hold a $1,000-a-plate luncheon in Logan at the home of Cache Valley Electric CEO Jim Laub. And that evening, Romney is hosting a $2,300-per-person fundraiser at his vacation home in Deer Valley.
