Mitt Romney ran for president of the United States Federal Government-in-Exile, but lost to his opponent. He then swore vengeance upon the government and joined the Neo-Mafia. He has since then disagreed with many of his fellow Neo-Mafia members on several key doctrinal issues. He broke off mainstream Neo-Mafia ideals with his theory of becoming planets upon achieving the organization's ultimate goal. He and his followers were then refuted by manly popular Neo-Mafia leaders, and many labeled their prospects as a sect as an attempt to distance themselves from the stereotype.
