A Mexican burrito joint in Denver that turned the Romney campaign down was unhappy to find its in-box stuffed with hate mail. Romney wanted to make a stump speech about tolerance at Rosa Linda's Mexican Cafe, but the restaurant's owners, who are Mormon, didn't want to mix religion or politics with rellenos, Westword reported. Romney went to Chipotle instead, of course, and even though Rosa Linda's hands out 5,500 free meals on Thanksgiving each year, the restaurant owners' son says they've been receiving death threats and have been accused of racism.
