How Romney Packed the Univision Forum

Mitt Romney's campaign packed the audience for the Univision forum at the University of Miami this week by busing in supporters "after exhausting the few conservative groups on campus," BuzzFeed reports.

Staffers even threatened to reschedule the event if organizers did not allow the exception to their student-only rule.

Mitt Romney himself also refused to come out on stage after anchors noted he "had agreed to give the network 35 minutes, and that Obama had agreed to a full hour the next night." Romney insisted they re-tape the introduction.

Said one of the Univision anchors: "It was a little bit of disrespect for us."
