One of Mitt Romney’s national finance co-chairs, Mel Sembler, was the founder of a drug/alcohol-recovery “boot camp” for teens called Straight Inc., where teens were “subjected to unusual punishment, infliction of pain, humiliation, intimidation, ridicule, coercion, threats, mental abuse… and interference with daily living functions such as eating, sleeping and toileting,” according to the LA Times.
Romney has more than one financial co-chair with abusive “boot-camp” ties in their past. Read the article at Reason magazine.
If you want to know more about these wretched “boot camps” for troubled teens, please read “Children’s Gulags” at the Orange Papers website. It’s an eye-opener, readers.
