Romney Classmate's Family: Media Story 'Factually Incorrect'

Friday, 11 May 2012 10:09 PM

The family of the classmate who was allegedly the target of Mitt Romney's high school bullying said the media's report on the then-teenager reports is "factually incorrect."

Family members told Fox News that they are "aggrieved that he would be used to further a political agenda."

The family also said in the public statement that was all they would say about the incident, Fox News reported.

The Washington Post reported Thursday that Romney and at least one other high school classmate, while attending boarding school in Michigan, had held down John Lauber, who was presumed to be gay, and cut off his long, bleached-blond hair.

Christine Lauber, his older sister, later told ABC News she had "no knowledge" of what happened because she was at college when the incident was said to have occurred at the Cranbrook School in Bloomfield, Mich.

John Lauber reportedly died of liver cancer in 2004.

Christine Lauber, who now lives in South Bend, Ind., said that if her brother were alive “he would be furious” about the story, Fox  News reported.
