GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney is being accused of using a "cheat sheet" during Wednesday night’s debate (video below).

Several left wing websites and bloggers are claiming that Romney can be seen removing a cheat sheet from his pocket and putting it on the podium.

Wonkette.com noted that pre-written notes were not allowed at the debate, while DailyKos.com writes:

Mitt takes something out of his pocket and tosses it on the podium.  It seems as if he maybe using his body to try and screen the movement… Yes it could be a hanky.  But it falls kind of heavy, and stays uniform in it’s fold.  Plus it is flat.  I have never seen a man’s hanky be so uniform and flat coming from a front pant’s pocket.  Back pocket, yes, breast pocket in a jacket, yes.. but not the front pant pocket.

However, the Romney campaign told Buzzfeed.com: "It’s a handkerchief."

Here are two videos from Mediaite.com.  You be the judge.
