la-pn-mitt-romneys-47-percent-poll-20120925-001Mitt Romney’s new mansion has all the amenities a modern-day vulture capitalist needs, including a hidden room:

The front door of Mitt Romney’s soon-to-be-constructed Holladay house opens to a massive living room, and to your left, around the fireplace, lies a study.

If you look closely at the bookshelves there, you find something interesting: a secret door.

The second bookshelf from the far wall is really a door that swivels out to reveal a hidden room.

This is but one voyeuristic tidbit The Salt Lake Tribune uncovered by examining the architectural and landscape drawings approved by Holladay in September that clearly identify the project as a home for the former Republican presidential nominee and his wife, Ann.

The home — with nearly 5,900 square feet of living space — will replace a rambler Romney is tearing down near Walker Lane and will be his second home in Utah. He recently bought a Deer Valley mansion that was on the market for $8.9 million.

We’re not going to make any lame jokes about that room being where he’ll keep the dead bodies – because that’s what the massive elevator-equipped garage in Malibu is for!
