In an article describing how Romney and friends at Bain managed to screw the Italian government to the tune of a billion dollars, several quotes stuck out:
That’s because Bain Capital, under Romney as chief executive officer, made about $1 billion in a leveraged buyout 12 years ago that remains controversial in Italy to this day.
Twelve years ago was the year 2000, when Romney claims he was not associated with Bain. Then this:
As Bain’s CEO from 1984 to 2001, Romney was personally involved in the deal at various points, including the initial decision to invest. He attended at least one meeting about it in Boston, according to a participant. When Bain sold the directory business in 2000, Romney, while still holding the title of CEO, was in charge of preparations for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. Romney has contended that he gave up management control of Bain in February 1999 to run the games.
They are now straight up calling him a liar. I hope Glenn Kessler doesn’t faint from such blunt talk.
