The American 2012 Republican nomination process took a twist today when the three houses owned by Mitt Romney all mysteriously burned to the ground. The incidents come just days after an interview when Romney told a foxy news presenter Dorothy Foxy that he doesn't care about poor people - as they have a 'safety net'.
The multi-millionaire former governor of Massachusetts was on the campaign trail when he heard the news of the fires at his mansions in Belmont Massachusetts, Wolfeboro New Hampshire and San Diego, California. There were no fatalities but all three houses were completely burnt to the ground.
A spokesman for the candidate told this reporter: "We suspect poor people."
A poor person who wished to remain anonymous reacted to the news. "Gee I sure hope 'Mitt' has a safety net to look after him!"
