SEC Documents Indicate Romney Committed Perjury

Political junkies are abuzz today with the latest Romney flip-flop, but this time it’s a little more serious. This morning, The Boston Globe reported that although Romney has said that he retired from Bain Capital in 1999, SEC filings by Bain claim that Romney remained the “sole shareholder, sole director, Chief Executive Officer and President” of Bain until 2002. And we’ve got the documents to show it.

Check out this excerpt from Romney’s 2001 Public Financial Disclosure Report, which he signed.

Now, check out this bit from the Securities and Exchange commission document filed by Bain Capital in 2002, signed by Romney:

So which is it? Did Romney lie to the American people about having left Bain three years before he actually did or did he lie to the SEC when he signed the 2001 filings? The Boston Globe stated that the discrepancy is important because “[Romney] has said his resignation in February 1999 meant he was not responsible for Bain Capital companies that went bankrupt or laid off workers after that date” and because Bain is the main source of Romney’s wealth.

The answer might be in the details. Politico published a statement from Bain Capital this afternoon:

“Mitt Romney left Bain Capital in February 1999 … Due to the sudden nature of Mr. Romney’s departure, he remained the sole stockholder for a time while formal ownership was being documented and transferred to the group of partners who took over management of the firm in 1999″

Which, apparently, is why Romney’s name is on the SEC filings three years after he “retired.”

Discrepant details or not, this is not good news for Romney. Lying to the SEC is considered a felony; lying to American voters is, well, just not right.


  1. Good evening, Mr. Fat Bastard,

    I have a progress report on Master Belly Boy. His follow-up surgeries appear to have been mostly successful, and he did not suffer a cardiac arrest during any of the procedures, as the doctors feared might happen. He told me that I could tell you all some of what has happened to him recently.

    The doctors have put him on several powerful drugs intended to rejuvenate his testicles and reverse their atrophy. There is a chance that he may be able to regain his sexual functionality, and have enough testosterone to be able to produce pubic and body hair. He will probably have to take these drugs for the rest of his life. Unlike normal steroids, which shut down the testicles, this drug causes the testicles to produce more testosterone on their own, which can cause them to reverse their shrinkage.

    He has had a significant amount of pubic fat removed, which should hopefully preserve his genitals from further damage, and it should mean that he will no longer need to wear a cup.

    He has also had a procedure done involving the addition of multiple synthetic arteries to bypass some arteries that are only mildly clogged. Furthermore, he has undergone electroshock therapy in the hopes that it would cure his alcoholism and Latent Homosexuality/Bisexuality Syndrome. He has suffered significant memory loss after this procedure and he will need more time to recover. He also broke his femur getting up to go take a dump in the middle of the night, when he slipped on some tranny fluid that the nurses did not know about. (He invited some new friends over to the hospital at night, before the nurses knew to clean it.)

    All things considered, he is doing well, but it will probably be a few months before he is able to do very much. He has been losing weight fairly rapidly as the doctors insist on a 2,500 calorie diet. Big Lard Ass is too busy chasing women to sneak him any extra food, and I am somewhat tempted to cut my vacation short so that I can be at his side, sneaking him some pad thai and other food items so that he does not have to suffer the pain of hunger.

    1. I might as well com clean, I Fat Bastard lost a great deal of weight so I cannot judge Belly Boy's weight loss. In my case it was lose weight or die but it seem that with only mild arterial clogging Belly Boy could have safely put on another 400 pounds.

      I am happy to know that things, though not 100% positive are mostly positive.

      Be ready James, after being on that 2,500 calorie starvation diet Belly Boy may be ornery and depressed. Then he may want to eat everything in sight. He will go on a massive feeding frenzy so keep those Belly Burgers coming.

      If Belly Boy's nuts match his body size he will be a 1/2 ton sex machine so keep bringing him a steady stream of skinny hos.

      I am happy to know that BLA is getting the sweet poontang. Asians chicks rule.

      Thanks for the updates James.
