Romney Classmate Confirms Incident

Phillip Maxwell told CNN he is “still haunted by what he claims he witnessed on the campus of the state’s elite Cranbrook School in 1965: a young Mitt Romney and a group of friends holding down a classmate named John Lauber and cutting off chunks of his long hair.”

Said Maxwell: “It was not an event you take a lot of pride in. And it was that way for all of us.”

He added: “I’m a lawyer. I know what an assault is. This kid was scared. He was terrified. That’s an assault.”
