Reader: Ann Romney was wearing skin-colored short tights, not skipping Mormon underwear

Earlier this week, we shared a Mormon writer's contention that Ann Romney wasn't wearing Temple garments in a photo taken at the Denver presidential debate. Afterward, readers debated whether he was correct or not. Here's a post from someone who provides a credible theory while taking the media to task for even raising the subject.

Anne P writes:

The pictures posted of garments are very out-dated and old.... (And seriously disrespectful to Mormons -- but that seems to be okay with the press). Ann is not the first Mormon woman to wear skin-colored short tights over her stretchy bottom garment. And a close look will show you the line of those tights. How about getting your mind out of people's underwear and into the problems our country faces?
