Mystery Grows Over When Romney Actually Left Bain

We noted last week discrepancies between Mitt Romney's claims that he left Bain Capital in early 1999 and SEC filings which suggest he was still at the firm later in the year.

Now Josh Marshall finds two additional SEC filings from July 2000 and February 2001 in which Romney lists his "principal occupation" as "Managing Director of Bain Capital, Inc."

"Romney's argument is that it doesn't matter what he said on these SEC filings. Even though he said he was running Bain, he really wasn't. He was really running the Olympics and didn't have any role at Bain. But absent of any evidence, how is it that anyone can be expected to disregard what Mitt actually told the SEC at the time?"
