Romney's Father Came from "Polygamy Commune"

Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer (D) told the Daily Beast that Mittt Romney would have a "tall order to position Hispanics to vote for him" even though his father was born in Mexico.

Schweitzer admitted that it is "kinda ironic given that his family came from a polygamy commune in Mexico, but then he'd have to talk about his family coming from a polygamy commune in Mexico, given the gender discrepancy."

Schweitzer noted that 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."
