I have known a Mormon lady for nearly 25 years who I have also worked for the last five or six years I have known her. She had a very well respected retail store with her husband for over 40 years in both southern and northern California. When she was young, she spent time with a very prominent Mormon politician during his college years before he sought an elected position, and he remains a key member of the republican party. While she had problems with this person's personality and "dating issues", she didn't have any issues against republicans or conservative viewpoints. Yeah, in the world of dating for the first time, there's more than a few things a jilted girlfriend is likely to say. Yeah, I have dirt but nothing many of us have not been guilty of in our youth. However, long before there was an issue with Mormon politicians, made famous most recently with Mitt Romney vs. some born again Christians, she used to always tell me about how this "other" Mormon politician used to devise a long term plan to bring the then, largely democratic Christian crowd to the republican fold. I have read that maybe this Mormon politician formed the alliance which is common today, but how would I make a claim on Wikipedia and back it up if all I have are local news stories from many years ago? Normally, I would not care and make an entry and the easily available information would expand on Wikipedia from many readers (some of it useful additions and some of it personal opinion but such is the nature of Wikipedia). But due to the sometimes strained relationships between republican Mormons and republican born again Christians, I am rather reluctant to make a Wikipedia entry a months before Mitt Romney woos born again Christians on the fence. I would love to hear your comments and suggestions.
