Romney Pranks The Press Following His Campaign

NBC’s Rock Center cameras caught Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney pulling a practical joke on the press corps that follows his campaign. Romney took a look at the press’ bus, which he deemed too comfortable accommodations, and left a note for them in which he revealed his opinions about their bus and telling them that he had wiped their hard drives.

“You guys have it way too soft in here – nice ride. Mitt,” Romney’s note read. “P.S.—Erased your hard drives.”

When the press returned to their bus, one reporter remarked “that’s actually pretty funny.”

The Romney campaign is taking a bus tour through small towns in six industrial Midwestern states – Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and Iowa. His campaign is also making stops in New Hampshire.
