Romney Says He Did "Dumb Things" as Teenager

The Washington Post reports that Mitt Romney took part in a prank as a teenager that involved pinning down and cutting the hair of a fellow student who had found himself the target of ridicule "for his nonconformity and presumed homosexuality."

Years later, Romney's high school friends expressed regret and described the incident as "vicious."

The Hill has Romney's response: "They talked about the fact that I played a lot of pranks in high school, and they described some that, boy, you just say to yourself, back in high school, you know, I did some dumb things. If anyone was hurt by that or offended by that, obviously I apologize. But overall, high school years were a long time ago."
