Before allowing local reporters in Denver to conduct one-on-one interviews with Mitt Romney, his camp made reporters promise not to ask him any questions about Rep. Todd Akin of "Legitimate Rape" fame or abortion in general.

CBS Denver's political specialist Shaun Boyd, one of only four reporters who agreed to the conditions, said she spent five minutes with Romney, and, though she was unable to speak directly on the off-limit topics, she did ask him about "the female vote."

A new Twitter hashtag — #romneyconditions — quickly emerged, and the Obama campaign pounced on the interview clause in a statement, saying "Romney's campaign might be able to muzzle reporters from asking tough questions, but women across America deserve to know the truth about Romney-Ryan's extreme agenda."
