A new website, www.MittRomneyisaUnicorn.com, alleges that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is secretly a mythical one-horned horse, and the organization behind the website is calling on the state of Arizona to investigate these claims. The website has gathered almost 25,000 signatures supporting a government investigation into the rising allegation that Romney is a unicorn and that the former Massachusetts governor has been hiding this secret from the public. From their website:
The Arizona Secretary of State, Ken Bennett has announced that he may keep Barack Obama off the ballot because of “questions” whether the president was born in America. … But what about Mitt Romney? What about the persistent rumors that Mitt Romney is in fact, a unicorn? There has never been a conclusive DNA test proving that Mitt Romney is not a unicorn. We have never seen him without his hair — hair that could be covering up a horn. No, we cannot prove it. But we cannot prove that it is not the case. And if Mitt Romney is or may be a unicorn, he is not Constitutionally qualified to be president. (source. emphasis in original.)
If the allegations are true it could be potentially damaging for the Romney campaign as popular sentiment seems to be that a magical equine would be unfit for the presidency. Romney himself has not yet commented on the unicorn allegations. It is unclear whether the state of Arizona will officially investigate the claims.
