Bank robber wears Mitt Romney mask

Stranger still: The same branch was robbed by someone in a Hillary Clinton mask two years ago

Since losing the election to President Obama, Mitt Romney has been spotted at gas stations, "Twilight" screenings and theme parks.

But the guy who robbed a bank in Virginia yesterday wasn't really Mitt -- it was just a man in a Mitt Romney mask.

A man wearing a Mitt Romney mask -- and a Florida State sweatshirt -- held up a Wells Fargo in Sterling, Va., on Thursday morning and got away with an unreported amount of cash, the Washington Post reports.


Even weirder: The same branch was robbed in 2010 by someone wearing a Hillary Clinton mask.
