The rotate tool is stretching my polygon object


In my tutorial I need to rotate my object. I selected the entire object in object mode, I select the rotate tool and when I rotate the object it starts to stretch my object as I rotate it.

Why is this happening and how can I prevent it?

Please help.

That can happen when Maya doesn't quite know what to do because of messy grouping of transform nodes. I had put that in my blog's Maya FAQ - distorting models.
