Something was a little peculiar about Mitt Romney's appearance Wednesday on Univision alongside Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas His orangey-brown appearance may have been the result of bad lighting or a make-up mishap, but the rumor is that Romney donned "brownface" to appeal to Latino voters.

Romney is currently trailing nearly 40 points behind President Obama in Latino support.
