Mitt Romney Called the Romney T-Shirt Girl

Samantha Pawlucy—the 16-year-old student now known at the “Romney T-shirt girl”—will not be returning to Charles Carroll High School in Port Richmond as a result of the fiasco that started when her geometry teacher ridiculed her for wearing a shirt supporting the GOP presidential candidate. On Wednesday, Mitt Romney called the girl up to ask if she was on Team Nicki or Team Mariah. The Romney campaign won’t be issuing a formal statement. Her father says that the family knew to expect the call, but that he totally forgot and took Sam to Taekwondo, so Mrs. Pawlucy spoke to the GOP presidential hopeful. Sad face. [Inquirer]
