"GOP Whip McCarthy Chides Romney On Mansion Expansion"

House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), the House’s third-ranking Republican, scolded presidential candidate Mitt Romney for choosing to quadruple the size of his California mansion, saying Romney should be projecting a more humble image:

McCarthy said he wonders who told wealthy former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney now was a good time to nearly quadruple the size of his family’s beach house in La Jolla. [...] “He needs to stop staying in hotels and start staying with volunteers at every campaign stop,” the House majority whip said. “His job should be to take out the trash every day, and if that bag breaks, he needs to clean it up.”
