        The fundraiser happened on May 17 of this year at Leder's Boca Raton home. The sex parties happened at Leder's New York home.

        DC: I'm 100% sure and I've watched the whole videotape, which is very, a lot of internal statements that Mitt Romney makes about where this happened and initially I was under the obligation not to reveal those details, but if you care to know, I can tell you whose house this was at and when it happened.

        RM: Please.

        DC: It was at the home of Marc Leder. He is a private equity manager and a quite controversial fellow. His Sun Capital fund has about $8 billion in it, and The New York Times did a pretty good story on him earlier this year, noting that he was a very big supporter of Mitt Romney. In fact, he got into the private equity game because he once visited Bain Capital and it kind a turned him on. And that The New York Times story reports that many of his deals have gone south and been controversial. Yes, as we've learned with private equity, he still made a lot of money. And he also has a, you can't call it a side business, but a side pursuit. He has very lavish parties, particularly at his estate in Bridgehampton. In fact, one he had in August 2011 was called, you know, an orgy by The New York Post and there were people there performing sexual acts at the party itself. This is who Mitt Romney is raising money with.

        RM: Was this at the Bridgehampton; the home on Long Island?

        DC: No, actually this fundraiser happened in his Boca Raton home on May 17th of this year.
