    the article is about a Bain special purpose vehicle, not about Mitt Romney himself. We have no way of knowing whether he even owns some of this particular SPV, and if so how much. But claiming that it is him, or that he owns 100% of it, is certainly spurious. But people seem to be Recommending any diary these days that says anything against Romney, no matter how illogical (or even when based on an article in a foreign language where nobody is quite sure what was even being said)!

        and I know the Volkskrant, it is legit. The translation that is floating around here in the comments is correct about the substance even if the sentence structure is a bit crooked.
        That said the title of this diary gets it wrong in the sense that it is indeed a Bain vehicle, in which Romney participates, that is using the fiscal loop hole, not Romney personally, so we don't really know how many millions he "saved" for himself.
