Mitt Romney’s grandson is dressing up for Halloween as a fictional French figure that the Utah senator says he knows well: Pierre Delecto. 

Tagg Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee’s 49-year-old son, tweeted Thursday that his son Thomas was sporting a costume inspired by his grandfather’s online alter ego.

In a snapshot shared by Tagg Romney, Thomas can be seen wearing a beret, sunglasses, a prominent handlebar mustache, and a name tag with “Mitt Romney” crossed off and “Pierre Delecto” written on it.

Following a report from The Atlantic, Romney told the publication when asked if he was the owner of the account, “C’est moi” — French for “it’s me.”
