The website Gawker published online hundreds of pages of documents from Mitt Romney’s tenure at Bain Capital on Thursday.
Romney’s work at the firm, as well as statement’s he’s made on the issue, have come under scrutiny over the course of the presidential campaign.
John Cook at Gawker reports on one of the revelations from the files released:
Romney has long claimed, despite evidence to the contrary, that he retired from Bain Capital in 1999. The Bain documents we obtained indicate that his involvement with the company extended years past that date.
Romney indicated in a financial disclosure form that he “retired” from Bain on Feb. 11, 1999. Gawker reports, however, that the presidential candidate had a stake in Sankaty Credit Opportunities, which was not created until 2002.
