California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman once allegedly shoved an eBay employee—and it appears she passed her bullying ways onto her sons. Griff and Will Harsh have gained quite the reputation during their years at Princeton. The latest story making the rounds involves the younger Will—a senior and captain of the rugby team—having a temper tantrum and insisting that two intramural softball teams get off “his” field, even though they had permission to use it. When the game resumed, witnesses tell IvyGate Will started throwing and punting bases around.

It’s just the latest in a long history of similar stories and rumors. Griff was suspended for a year and forced to graduate with the class of 2009; among his alleged antics: throwing a beer in someone’s face and justifying it because he’s a “billionaire,” and beating up a girl. Will’s classy behavior allegedly includes: getting kicked out of two prep schools, throwing around the N-word, getting himself banned from Princeton’s hoity-toity eating clubs, and refusing to introduce a girlfriend to his family because she was Jewish.
