After weeks of withering criticism from Fox News regarding Mitt Romney’s governorship of the liberal state of Massachusetts, the Romney camp finally addressed the issue in a statement.

Mitt Romney is not now and has never has been the Governor of Massachusetts.  His twin sister, Mitsy Romney, well known for her moderate and even liberal positions on health care and women’s rights, was actually the governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007.  Mitsy touted her moderate and progressive views, not Mitt.

When the campaign was immediately challenged by reporters and fact-checkers, who claimed that Mitt Romney had indeed been governor and presented himself as having moderate and progressive views, it responded with a statement from its lead pollster, Neil Newhouse.

“Fact checkers come to this with their own sets of thoughts and beliefs, and we’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers.”

The campaign also told reporters that if they questioned Mitsy’s term as governor, they could check out her Facebook Page (here).  They are expecting many folks to comment on her Facebook Page and become friends with Mitsy in the days ahead.

The campaign also said that Mitsy would be reaching out to women voters in the weeks ahead.
