Obama Campaign Took Cash From Bain Outsourcing Execs
Barack Obamaâ€™s campaign has been quick to rip Mitt Romney for his association with Bain Capital, which outsourced certain jobs during restructuring of companies. Thereâ€™s only one problem: many of the very executives who were running Bain Capital during the 1999â€“2002 period now under media scrutiny donated to Obamaâ€™s presidential campaign. And Obama was more than happy to cash the checks.
The same SEC form from February 2001 that lists Mitt Romney as â€śsole shareholder, sole director, Chief Executive Officer and President of Bain Capital . . . the controlling person of Bain Capitalâ€ť also lists over a dozen other managing directors of Bain Capital, Inc. â€” all of whom were undoubtedly more active than Romney was during this period. And President Obama took money from many of them.
