Just saw this on MSNBC, yet another financial "issue" for Romney....
Mitt Romney, who makes his hands-on business experience a talking point in his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, was a member of the board of directors and audit committee of a global company when it paid millions of dollars to settle charges of extracting kickbacks that cheated clients.
As a board member, Romney held oversight responsibilities at a time when Marriott was repeatedly accused of obtaining secret rebates that enriched Marriott, at the expense of hotel owners who had contracted with Marriott to run the hotels on their behalf. A series of owners also accused Marriott of falsifying financial statements to owners to conceal the arrangements—charges that Marriott had denied.
Romney is being
swift boated attacked to the highest degree, and the longer these stories stay out there the more he is harmed.
It is simply amazing to me that the GOP can even consider nominating Romney given his background. 99 percent of this nation is struggling to survive, and the GOP may nominate someone who is more out of touch with "real" America than anyone before him (including Bush).
What else is Mittens trying to hide? I am just sitting here shaking my head and thinking that if MR represents financial success than our nation had better start imposing some laws to put the likes of Romney in jail.
