Gotcha Morning | Does It Matter When Mitt Romney Left Bain?

Another day, another damaging scandal for Mitt Romney. This time the source is an article in the Boston Globe, which claims Romney stayed at Bain Capital for three years after he claims he left and the company started doing pesky things like shipping jobs overseas.
Rachel Maddow went straight to the source, interviewing Christopher Rowland who wrote the Globe article. Rowland admits that Mitt Romney may have not physically been at the Bain offices everyday during those three years, but he was still drawing a paycheck, presumably for doing something.

CNN's John King spoke to several of Mitt Romney's colleagues at Bain during the time that he claims to have left in 1999. Those sources maintain that once Romney left to work on the Salt Lake City Olympics, they never saw him again but were required by law to keep his name on the SEC documents until they finished the process of replacing him.
While these two accounts, by the Boston Globe and by former Bain employees, seem at odds, they share an essential problem for Mitt Romney. Either Romney left Bain when he said he did and continued to get paid for doing nothing or he continued his high-level involvement and participated in the firm's outsourcing activity. Both scenarios discredit Romney's claim the his Bain Capital experience makes him the perfect candidate to fix the U.S. economy.
