Romney Campaign Won’t Say Who Was Running Bain After 1999

Mitt Romney has insisted that he gave up all control of Bain Capital in February of 1999, right before the company invested in firms that sent jobs overseas and laid off thousands of workers. But on Monday, Romney’s senior adviser couldn’t say who was running the company in his absence. “You should check with Bain, but it wasn’t Mitt Romney,” Eric Fehrnstrom told Reuters’ Sam Youngman. Romney claims to have turned over day to day management of Bain to a management team after he left for the Olympics, though the company continued to list Romney as its CEO well into 2002.
