Mitt Romney has repeatedly claimed that he was gone from Bain Capital when it sent jobs overseas.
But documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission have now come to light showing that Romney was in charge of Bain from 1999 to 2001, a period in which the company outsourced jobs and ran companies that fell into bankruptcy.
Romney has tried to distance himself from this period in Bain’s history, saying on financial disclosure forms he had no active role in Bain as of February 1999.
But at least three times since then, Bain listed Romney as the company’s “controlling person,” as well as its “sole shareholder, sole director, chief executive officer and president.” And one of those documents — as late as February 2001 — lists Romney’s “principal occupation” as Bain’s managing director.
But serial liar Romney has now gone on TV claiming that Obama is the one distorting the truth.
Oh Mitt, just bite me already.
