The Sins of the Great-Great-Grandfathers....
What a stupid article this
While Mitt Romney condemns polygamy and its prior practice by his Mormon church, the Republican presidential candidate's great-grandfather had five wives and at least one of his great-great grandfathers had 12.
Polygamy was not just a historical footnote, but a prominent element in the family tree of the former Massachusetts governor now seeking to become the first Mormon president.
Romney's great-grandfather, Miles Park Romney, married his fifth wife in 1897. That was more than six years after Mormon leaders banned polygamy and more than three decades after a federal law barred the practice.
Who cares about this crap? As Mitt Romney has noted, he's one of the few Republicans in the race who hasn't had more than one wife.
Look, what matters is what Mitt has done in his own life. If his great-grandfather broke the law, that's mildly interesting but completely and utterly irrelevant.
