    Default Rapper: Mitt Romney "assaulted" me

    I wasn't sure if this goes under politics or gossip, but since I've never heard of this guy, but I've unfortunately heard of Romney, I added it here.

    LMFAO Rapper: Mitt Romney "Assaulted" Me


    Days after reports that Mitt Romney was physically threatened by another passenger on a flight from Vancouver, LMFAO rapper Sky Blu has come forward to say he was the other man involved — and that in fact the former Republican presidential candidate "assaulted" him.
    In a video posted on the group's website, the rapper said he reclined seat prior to takeoff and that Romney grabbed his shoulder and yelled at him repeatedly to put his seat up.

    The rapper, whose real name is Skyler Gordy, said Romney, 62, was "loud" and "angry" and gripped his shoulder.
    "I just reacted — boom — get off of me," said Gordy, the nephew of Motown Records founder Berry Gordy. He makes a backward-chopping gesture as he says "boom" in the video, but didn't specify what if any physical contact he made at the time toward the former Massachusetts governor.
    "I didn't take it any further. I just wanted the man not to touch me, not to grab me," he said in the video, also featuring musical partner Redfoo (Stefan Gordy, the Motown founder's son). "The man assaulted me. I tried to protect myself."
    Romney's rep did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
    A video apparently recorded by Redfoo shows Blu being removed from the plane. Blu says he was detained and allowed to purchase a ticket for a later flight. Neither Blu nor Romney pressed charges.

    Blu said he would not vote for Romney in the future, because he is a Democrat, but joked that he would do a shot with the politician — if he drinks.
    "I'm sure he's a nice guy. It's just an unfortunate situation," Sky Blu said in the video. "I have no hard feelings towards him."

    Just from what I know about Mitt Romney, I'd tend to believe the other guy.

    Im up in the air on this one. He and his partner were escorted off the plane and Mitt didnt press charges. Maybe he asked the guy politely a few times before that...maybe he kept reclining his seat back to be a jerk, there are some senerios that I could see taking place on both sides.

    With the amount of money Romney has he can afford a private plane, so why was he taking a Sky Blu flight?

    I'm glad the other guys is coming out and contradicting this. It's almost like Romney made a public statement on this after the incident happened to make himself look good.

    ETA: Plus, I believe this guy more because he's giving more detail. Seems more plausible.
