While his orangey-brown appearance on Univision could have been the result of bad lighting or a makeup mishap, left-wing blog the Democratic Underground concluded that Romney "dyed his face brown for his Univision interview."
The claim is not completely out of the ballpark. After all, as Gawker points out, Romney did say "it would be helpful to be Latino," in a video secretly recorded at a campaign fundraiser earlier this year.
Even his tan isn't sincere.

Reminds me of that Seinfeld episode where Kramer is dating a black girl & over-tans prior to meeting her parents for the first time.

I wouldn't go so far as to say that he dyed his skin, but it definitely looks like he's been fake baking.

By my estimate, he's about 47% tanner than usual.
