You've heard of Norman Hsu -- why not Robert Lichfield?

Romney's campaign, on the other hand, would only have had to spend a few moments with Nexis to discover allegations against Lichfield. Among the news reports that Romney staff could have easily found prior to the February fundraiser that Lichfield helped organize:

An April 21, 2005, Deseret Morning News article reported on "persistent allegations of child abuse and claims of questionable business practices surrounding the World Wide Association of Speciality Schools (WWASPS) founded by Robert Lichfield."

An August 19, 2005, Deseret Morning News article reported that a school connected to Lichfield "has been ordered to refund more than $1 million to parents and stop misrepresenting itself." The school had no authority to issue high school diplomas, but issued 113 anyway, and falsely claimed to have been accredited by the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools. An Associated Press article the same day also covered the order.


You say you want balanced media???
