It turns out Mitt Romney probably wasn't discriminating against John Lauber for being gay when he cut his hair off in high school. Romney says he doesn't remember the incident but it looks like cutting hair was just something he liked to do. Almost like a sick hobby.
From a Washington Post story published in April:
As a kid in Michigan, Sidney Barthwell Jr., a high school classmate, recalled Romney as a prankster driving doughnuts in snowy parking lots. At Stanford, he lured rival University of California students into a trap in which his buddies “shaved their heads and painted them red,” according to a 1970 speech at Brigham Young University by his father, George Romney.
Just call him Sweeney Todd.
