Monday’s New York Times has one of the better efforts to date attempting to unravel the Romney-Bain departure mystery.
The key graph, however, cuts both ways:
Indeed, no evidence has yet emerged that Mr. Romney exercised his powers at Bain after February 1999 or directed the funds’ investments after he left, although his campaign has declined to say if he attended any meetings or had any other contact with Bain during the period.
I will keep saying this until the matter is resolved: there are other derivative questions, but what we really need to know from Mitt Romney is, who ran Bain from 1999 until his “retroactive” retirement and what was the nature and frequency of any contact he had with them?
C’mon, Boston. You say you want to move on — so tell us.
