Romney's new home has elevators for his cars, and its own lobbyist

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

This is getting a bit of attention online this morning.  It seems Mitt Romney's new home is quite the palace.  His cars even get their own elevator. From Politico:

At Mitt Romney’s proposed California beach house, the cars will have their own separate elevator.

There’s also a planned outdoor shower and a 3,600-square foot basement — a room with more floor space than the existing home’s entire living quarters.

Those are just some of the amenities planned for the massive renovation of the Romneys’ home in the tony La Jolla neighborhood of San Diego, according to plans on file with the city.

A project this ambitious comes with another feature you don’t always find with the typical fixer-upper: its own lobbyist, hired by Romney to push the plan through the approval process.
A house with its own lobbyist might sound extravagant until you realize that homes are people too.

And why does any home need a 3,600 square foot basement?  Personal landing strip?  Private shopping mall?  Or just to store Mitt Romney's ego?  Feel free to post your answers in the comments.
