Wrestler to have Romney tattoo removed

MICHIGAN CITY, Ind., Dec. 3 (UPI) -- An Indiana pro wrestler who was paid $15,000 to have a Mitt Romney logo tattooed on his face said he wants it removed because Romney is a "sore loser."

Eric Hartsburg of Michigan City said Friday he decided to have the tattoo removed when he heard the former Republican nominee comment that he lost because President Barack Obama gave "gifts" to women, minorities and college students, the South Bend (Ind.) Tribune reported Monday.

"I could deal with being a part of a losing campaign, but to still stand behind Governor Romney with the positions he's taken post-election with the blame game instead," Hartsburg said. "To be such a sore loser about it, to me I can't walk around representing that."

Hartsburg, who said he is thinking about giving up wrestling for an acting career, said he will move to Los Angeles to undergo the removal process for his facial tattoo, which will be spread across several sessions over a year.
