Romney Courting Ethics Charge?

According to those who know, Willard Mitt went to the New England Patriots playoff game against the Tennessee Titans, and sat in Donald Trump's box. (source: Boston Herald, 1/11/2004)

Wait a minute. Not four months ago, Romney was on WFXT proclaiming that politicians should not have special access to sporting event tickets. (see RiaF, 10/9/2003)

We hope the Fraud Governor has a cancelled check, showing he paid full and fair market value for those ducats.

Particularly since the Donald has long had his eye on building a casino in Massachusetts - and Romney has been decidedly casino friendly. And while Willard Mitt's gambling guise has slipped as of late, Trump also has a history of helping sponsor Indian casinos. (source: Boston Globe, 4/6/2003) So it is not a stretch to say that he and Team Reform could be determining state gaming policy in the very near future.

Which could be fodder for some fairly interesting discussions.
