Romney's Own Testimony Contradicts Claims

Mitt Romney's claim that he played no part in decision-making related to Bain Capital after 1999 is false, according to Romney's own sworn testimony in June 2002, the Huffington Post reports.

Romney's sworn testimony appears to back up the SEC filings and contradict his personal disclosure forms submitted to Massachusetts officials in 2002, in which he said that he retired from Bain on Feb. 11, 1999.

Politico: "The problem for the Romney campaign, when it comes to the Bain issue, is that things are reaching the point where the facts don't really matter. The bigger problem is that the Bain cloud now hanging over the former Massachusetts governor is growing daily, and the Romney campaign still hasn't found a compelling way to respond to what's becoming the driving narrative, fairly or unfairly, of the 2012 campaign."
