Frank Rich, writer-at-large for New York Magazine, said Wednesday that voters were likely to be turned off by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s secrecy.

“People don’t really know where he lives,” Rich told Joy Behar on Current TV. “He can’t say the word Mormon without having a heart attack, won’t take questions about it, and yet it is a big part of his life.”

Romney was a missionary in France for two years and has also served as a bishop for the Mormon church. But the presidential candidate rarely ever mentions his Mormon faith.

Rich also noted that after serving as Massachusetts’ governor, Romney completely replaced all the computers in his office, forever eliminating the data stored on the old computers.

“People want a president that they feel they know and can trust, and know who he is, and this is sort of the man from nowhere.”
