now up at Think Progress. It is titled Exclusive: Romney Family Investment Group Partnered With Alleged Perpetrators Of $8 Billion Ponzi Scheme.
You will find out that Mitt Romney, his son Tagg, and his brother Scott all have involvement.
Tagg has key involvement, and when challenged on the relationship with three key players from the Stanford Financial Group - which was responsible for the 2nd largest financial fraud, after that of Bernie Madoff - incorrectly claimed the three had been cleared in the investigation (they are still defendants in a federal law suit to recover funds) and had made minimal amounts (whereas the reality is that rather than the $15,000 Tagg claims the three earned between 70,000 and 1.1 million).
Romney's principal fundraiser, Spencer Zwick, is also a managing partner for one of the firms involved, and the Republican nominee himself put in $10 million of seed money.
Read the Think Progress piece.
Pass it on.
Lobby the media to challenge the Romneys on this.
Use it as a stick to beat the drum of demanding more release of financial information from Mitt Romney.
We need to ensure the American people understand that Mitt Romney and his ilk get to play by different sets of rules that benefit them and hurt the rest of us. Is this really what they want running the government?
