Of all the companies for Bain to invest in! David Corn has a piece up at Mother Jones* about Mitt’s investment in a medical waste company, Stericycle, that disposes of aborted fetuses.
Corn says that Bain earlier argued that Mitt was not involved in the investment, but documents he’s now obtained show that’s not true:
“The company said Romney left the firm in February 1999 to run the troubled 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and likely had nothing to do with deal. The matter never became a campaign issue [during the primary]. But documents filed by Bain and Stericycle with the Securities and Exchange Commission — and obtained by Mother Jones — list Romney as an active participant in the investment. And this deal helped Stericycle, a company with a poor safety record, grow, while yielding tens of millions of dollars in profits for Romney and his partners. The documents — one of which was signed by Romney — also contradict the official account of Romney’s exit from Bain.
“The Stericycle deal — the abortion connection aside — is relevant because of questions regarding the timing of Romney’s departure from the private equity firm he founded. Responding to a recent Washington Post story reporting that Bain-acquired companies outsourced jobs, the Romney campaign insisted that Romney exited Bain in February 1999, a month or more before Bain took over two of the companies named in the Post‘s article. The SEC documents undercut that defense, indicating that Romney still played a role in Bain investments until at least the end of 1999.”
Talk about blood money! Lying and dead fetuses — this will help Mitt with a right wing that already doesn’t trust him. Yeah, I know they’re not voting for the Kenyan Muslim Communist, but some of them will stay home.
