Romney Admitted in 2002 He Never Cut Ties to Bain

Politicker: "Back in 2002 when he was running for Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney and his aides had no problem admitting he retained his position as CEO of Bain Capital after 1999. Press articles from the time describe how Mr. Romney was on a 'leave of absence' after 1999 and had not fully cut ties with the private equity firm."

Dave Weigel quotes a Boston Herald article when Romney left the firm in February 1999: "Romney said he will stay on as a part-timer with Bain, providing input on investment and key personnel decisions."

Meanwhile, Daily Kos has a press release from mid-1999 that describes Romney as being "part-time."
