The SEC Document Threatening Romney’s Presidency
While the Romney campaign is aggressively fighting back against reports that their candidate’s tenure at Bain Capital went on for longer than he once claimed, a document filed by Romney in 2000 could prove extremely detrimental to his run at the Presidency. The Jan. 3rd 2000 SEC filing with Romney’s signature states that “Mitt Romney is principally engaged in the business of serving as sole stockholder of BCI VI, Inc. (Bain Capital Investors VI)”, standing in direct contrast with other financial disclosure forms filed by Romney in later years claiming that he had left the company in 1999 to run the Salt Lake City Olympics.
And there’s also this (from the Huff Post):
Add another document to the pile of evidence contradicting Mitt Romney’s continued insistence that he ended his active role with Bain Capital in early 1999, part of his long-running effort to avoid responsibility for the company’s activity, related to outsourcing and bankruptcies, during the years that followed.
A corporate document filed with the state of Massachusetts in December 2002 — a month after Romney was elected governor — lists him as one of two managing members of Bain Capital Investors, LLC “authorized to execute, acknowledge, deliver and record any recordable instrument purporting to affect an interest in real property, whether to be recorded with a Registry of Deeds or with a District Office of the Land Court.”
