"When Mitt Romney was a college freshman, he told fellow residents of his Stanford University dormitory that he sometimes disguised himself as a police officer ï¿½ a crime in many states, including Michigan and California, where he then lived. And he had the uniform on display as proof.
Said Madden in a recent interview, ï¿½He told us that he had gotten the uniform from his father,ï¿½ George Romney, then the Governor of Michigan, whose security detail was staffed by uniformed troopers. ï¿½He told us that he was using it to pull over drivers on the road. He also had a red flashing light that he would attach to the top of his white Rambler.ï¿½
In Maddenï¿½s recollection, confirmed by his wife Susan, who also attended Stanford during those years, ï¿½we thought it was all pretty weird. We all thought, ï¿½Wow, thatï¿½s pretty creepy.ï¿½"
