In Primary Debate, Romney Suggested He Was At Bain Until 2002

Mitt Romney's campaign often says he stayed at Bain Capital only until 1999, and isn't responsible for outsourcing that occurred after he left the company. But documents reported by the Boston Globe suggest otherwise. Romney may have accidentally suggested he was at Bain until 2002 in a primary debate saying “I worked at one company Bain for 25 years.” Since Romney started at Bain in 1977, adding 25 years would have meant he left in 2002 according to his own count. Update An earlier post failed to note Romney had said the one company he worked at was Bain.

A report from the Boston Globe today claims Romney left Bain Capital later than previously claimed, 2002 not 1999. The company says the issue is merely technical, and he was gone from the firm.posted
