Is Bain The Bane Of Romney’s Political Existence?

More questions are being asked about Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney’s record at Bain Capital. (AP)

As President Obama and his Republican rival Mitt Romney continue to accuse each other of lying and distorting facts, we’re learning more about one of the key things they’re fighting about: when Mitt Romney left Bain Capital, the investment company he created, from which he made his millions.

Romney’s campaign says he retired from Bain in 1999, which lets him off the hook politically for job losses that occurred at Bain-controlled companies after 1999. But The Boston Globe reports there’s new evidence linking him to the company after that year.
