Notable for being Mitt's son. That's it. Self promotional BLP author doesn't count.

So are you asking editors here to rush and delete this article? Seems to meet the threshold for notability. Unless this article was created by Tagg or one of his associates any claims of "self-promotion" are dubious.

I don't think you have the slightest idea as to what consititues a notable person, then. Working on dad's campaign and making some tv appearances on his behalf don't cut it. Hell, All Gore III was in the news for more than that ages ago, but he does not have an article either.

Tarc, the threshold for notability is quite clear.

Just because Al Gore III lacks an article does not mean Tagg Romney is not notable. The original poster claimed the article was an act of self-promotion which would be hard to prove in an AFD.

Tagg is notable only for being Mitt's son. So his 15 minutes of non-fame goes into Mitt's "personal" section, not a separate BLP. The snark about self-promotion is secondary. The man's "myspace" page is listed. He's 40 years old and made it on TV once in 2007 for promoting his father's campaign. No more notable than his brother....

Might help to actually read/comprehend what you cite.

The self-promo angle is irrelevant. This point, which sailed far over your head, is that Gore the Third has have several, some may say many, brushes with the tabloid media following his altercations and arrests and such. Yet that article still remains (rightly) deleted since the only reason they are talking about him is in in the context of being a Famous Kid in Trouble.

Tagg (jesus what a retarded name, I feel bad for Mormons) hasn't even remotely approached that level of possible notability., he hasn't done anything other than work on Mitt's campaign and make a handful of appearances on the cable news circuit. I also nominated the other brother, Josh. Same issue; there just ain't no there, there.

I think if we dig through politican's relatives on both sides of the aisle we're going to find many of these puff pieces. Cameron Kerry (T-H-L-K-D) is another possible deletion candidate. I met him years ago actually, cool guy, but except for the break-in in kerfuffle there's not much substantial there either.

Love the lede on Kerry's brother. "political confidant". To his brother. Oh my.

Have not checked out Billy Carter's BLP yet, but his beer was a national sensation.

Redd Foxx was originally a Romney. Little known fact I read on WP.

To be fair, one of the most famous WR/WP muckrakers, wordbomb (bless his heart!) has that double thing going on in his first name. And I think there's a good chance he might be working with the Mitt campaign, or you'd think he would be. Not that there's anything wrong with that!

Mitt does have that panty-remover stare going on, despite the whole mormon keep those panties on thing.

I'm not even going to look at Pawlenty's BLP. Wikipedia has a lot to look forward to as the silly season arrives tonight in US politics.

Now, back to my copy of Juggs magazine.....
