Bain Discrepancy “A Big Problem”
salon.com — Mitt Romney is under fire after new reports suggest he stayed at Bain Capital longer than he claimed. The Boston Globe, citing SEC documents and financial filings with the state of Massachusetts reported yesterday that Romney stayed on at Bain years past his official departure date of February 1999. And the Huffington Post obtained sworn testimony Romney gave to a June 2002 hearing determining whether he had sufficient residency status to run for governor in Massachusetts. In it, he says he “remained on the board” of a company Bain was heavily invested in, which would contradict earlier statements. If Romney did indeed stay at Bain longer than he’s claimed, it’s potentially more than just a political problem, but a criminal one as well.
