Mitt Romney’s antecedent larboard a debt, columnist Judith Freeman says, and she wants the big-pocketed applicant to pay up what she believes she is owed for a many-decades old altercation over polygamy and the laws of the time surrounding the practice.

The Romney debt goes aback to the 1880s, and involves Freeman’s great-grandfather William Flake, a polygamist, and Romney’s antecedent Miles Romney.

According to Freeman, the Romney debt stems from the Romney antecedent jumping band and beat to
Mexico, area Mitt’s dad was born. This weekend, Freeman explained how her great-grandpa had been confined and ashore with Miles Romney’s debt for his band bond back the ancient Romney fled south of the bound with his wives and kids:

    “Miles P. Romney skipped out on his bail, beat beyond the bound into Mexico with his three wives, Hannah, Annie, and Catharine, and their accouchement … He larboard my great-grandfather [William] Flake captivation the bag. Flake, on the added hand, was eventually beatific to the Yuma Territorial Prison area he served out a six-month book for polygamy.”
