Michigan lawyer Geoffrey Fieger is reviving the Mitt Romney bullying controversy in a new attack ad that is airing in the Wolverine State.

In the ad, Fieger — who is best known as the defense attorney for Jack Kevorkian, and who unsuccessfully ran as the Democratic nominee for governor of Michigan in 1998 — explains that, when he was a boy, two bullies held him down and shaved his head because they disapproved of his long hair.

Jason Horowitz reported in The Washington Post in May that Romney led a strikingly similar attack while he was in high school, and Fieger is incensed at Romney’s refusal to take full responsibility for his bullying.

“He has now looked the American people in the eye and stated that he doesn’t remember doing it,” Fieger says.

“Anyone who claims they don’t remember physically attacking someone is either a sociopath, a liar, or both,” he angrily adds.
