Subject: Petition for Romney to Return Tax Dollars

South Carolina Taxpayer:

Today former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney used taxpayer funded police escorts to speed him to various campaign events in our state.  Needless to say this is a waste of taxpayer dollars for any South Carolinian who does not support Romney's campaign and he should apologize to all of us.

We have put together the "Return South Carolina Tax Dollars" petition to urge Mitt Romney to reimburse in-full the costs from this trip and apologize to the taxpayers of South Carolina for using our tax dollars and breaking our laws.  This reminds us all of the fake police troopers he used on his campaign in the past.

Please send an email to to add your name to the petition and please include your full name and address.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
