Since Willard is claiming he left Bain [Vulture] Capital in February 1999 to go "save" the 2002 Winter Olympics (i.e., beg for taxpayer money to fix it), he can't be held accountable for any of the nasty things that Bain did in the years after that. (Hmmm. Funny. To prove his residency in Massachusetts in order to run for governor there, he swore that he regularly attended BUSINESS MEETINGS in the state.) Needless to say, Romney's shifty conduct has raised questions. In fact, Forbes' T.J. Walker has THIRTY-FIVE of 'em right here. Here are some of them:5. You earned at least $100,000 as an executive from Bain in 2001 and 2002, separate from investment earnings according to filings with State of Massachusetts. Can you give an example of anyone else you personally know getting a six figure income, not dividend or investment return, but actual income, from a company they had nothing to do with?
9. In 2002, you are listed as one of two managing members of Bain Capital Investors LLC in its annual report. What does this mean?
15. Isn’t it possible that if Bain had made an investment during 1999 to 2002 that you felt was truly odious, for example ownership of a legal Nevada brothel, that you could have and would have used your authority to veto such a decision?
19. According to the Boston Globe, “Romney also testified that ‘there were a number of social trips and business trips that brought [him] back to Massachusetts, board meetings’ while he was running the Olympics. He added that he remained on the boards of several companies, including the Lifelike Co., in which Bain Capital held a stake until 2001.” You testified that while running the Olympics you took a number of business trips to Massachusetts and for board meetings for companies including Lifelike Co. Bain had a stake in this company until 2001. Are you contending that you could attend board meetings for Lifelike Co at the same time Bain Capital had a stake in Lifelike Co and at the same time you owned the stock of Bain Capital, but that somehow your attending a board meeting for a company partially owned by Bain had nothing to do with Bain because you were on the board as Mitt Romney the individual, not as the representative of Bain?
24. Why do SEC documents claim you were Chief Executive Officer, President, and Managing Director of Bain Capital 2000 and 2001 if you were merely the sole owner?
25. Did you sign this SEC document?
26. Is this accurate or not?
27. If you didn’t sign it, is someone guilty of lying to the SEC?
28. True or false, it is a felony to lie on SEC filings?
Why don't I think Willard will be answering any of these any time soon?
