Still no confirmation on whether or not Mitt Romney actually saw his father marching with Martin Luther King, Jr. But this just in:
Mitt was there when MLK was tragically gunned down in cold blood and, alert as ever, he was able to point out the shooter, leading to the eventual arrest of James Earl Ray. Perhaps evidence of Romney’s earlier claims will be found. Perhaps we owe him an apology, as this picture clearly shows the Romney-King connection.
Thanks to Buck at Blue Herald for bringing this photo to light. It’s an amazing scoop.
Update: An earlier photo of Mittens and Martin has surfaced, this time over at Balloon Juice. Wow! Romney’s just like that J.R. “Bob” Dobbs guy. He’s everywhere!
Update: Two eyewitness surface. Claims one:
When I told Robertson that news reports placed Martin Luther King in New Jersey at the time, he replied: “Well, it was somebody who certainly looked like him.”
Yeah, let me guess. He was black, right? Check.
