I’m not asking, Politico is:
Earlier this month, FactCheck.org stated that if Mitt Romney had not left Bain Capital in 1999, he “would be guilty of a federal felony by certifying on federal financial disclosure forms that he left active management of Bain Capital in February 1999.”
FactCheck.org made that argument to dismiss complaints by President Barack Obama’s campaign, but a new Boston Globe report on Romney’s true tenure at Bain Capital — which reportedly lasted until 2002, three years longer than Romney has stated — brings FactCheck.org’s statement into sharp relief.
“In fact, if the Obama campaign were correct, Romney would be guilty of a federal felony by certifying on federal financial disclosure forms that he left active management of Bain Capital in February 1999.”
So what does the Mitt Romney campaign say about him breaking the law? They say it’s just a “quirk in the law.”
Really? That’s what they’re going with? Pull up the chairs folk. This one’s gonna be fun.
You kinda got to feel sorry for Mitt Romney though. He’s just too pretty to go to jail…
