New Web Video: Mitt Romney’s Big Bain Lie

Following the Globe’s report yesterday, Obama for America released a new online video this morning called “Your Turn” that highlights Mitt Romney’s misrepresentation of his departure from Bain Capital. Romney has consistently claimed he left Bain in 1999 for the Olympics and thus  he  could not be blamed for bankruptcies and layoffs from Bain investments. Now, with proof from the SEC, it is clear he is lying. Mitt Romney didn’t leave Bain until 2001 according to SEC fillings. He continued as the firm’s president and CEO, remained on the payroll, and continuously signed government documents representing himself as the head of that firm including receiving severance pay until 2009. So now it’s Mitt Romney turn to explain how he either mislead the country or misrepresented himself to the SEC.
