        Due to the cronic foot in mouth disease of Mitt the pits Romney and his blunders of being Mitt the Twit about the Brit's; we may be in danger that the campaign lying about when Mitt Romney being at Bain Capital - being so last week. To make sure this desire of pathetic Pitten's does not transpire, below the fold are 25 separate evidences that Mitt Romney was doing much business post February 1999.

Likely REAL Reason Mitt Romney is Lying About Bain Capital CEO Tenure

I was the liquidator approved by the federal court to handle the eToys bankruptcy case. Bain Capital announced they were going to buy everything for $3.5 / $5.4 million in 2001. We halted that plan and forced them to pay tens of millions of dollars more. When they started to scheme to reduce those prices and I found evidence that eToys may not have really been bankrupt - the Debtor attorney ( ) and the Creditors Attorney (Paul Traub) - offered us a bribe of $850,000 to let them get away with it all. When I told them to shove it and reported it all to the Dept of Justice - Romney panic's and resigns as CEO of Bain Capital and a partner of the MNAT law firm is nominated as DE US Attorney August 2, 2001. Where for 7 years - he refused to investigate or prosecute the perpetrators - even after we forced them to confess to lying under oath 34 times.

      Now, we have learned that the attorney for eToys ( and the attorney for eToys Creditors (Paul Traub) - actually are guilty of treason (ethics code violations) to their oath to protect their court approved clients (eToys & Creditors) - because MNAT and Paul Traub really work for Bain Capital.

      Thus the federal crimes massive equal Bain Capital selling eToys to Bain Capital!

                                                               For FREE!

                                                           Brilliant scheme.
                                        Organized Crimes & Federal Corruption
                                                            - but brilliant.

      Can Al Capone "retroactively" retire from his crimes because Nitti says he wasn't there?

                 If we didn't have these evidences that Romney failed to destroy????

                                             We shall continue below the fold


      Yours truly (Laser Haas) is an enemy of Mitt Romney, Bain Capital, MNAT, Paul Traub, Goldman Sachs and their corruption (bought & paid for) federal agents.

     However, though I am a victim of their crimes and thus bias against them for destroying my life, company & career; everything item in this "Diary" has corroboration by indepdent sourcing.  


        Many sources and persons state Bain without the requisite "Capital" after the 1st part. Bain & Company (though heavily tied to much of Bain Capital/ Mitt Romney efforts world wide) - is separate of Bain Capital.
        Furthermore, there's over 100 separate Bain Capital/ SanKaty entities owned, controlled or signed on by Mitt Romney at one time or another. Including Bain Capital Investment Partners ("BCIP") and/ or many versions thereof - including BCIP X, BCIP XIV and/ or Bain Capital Investors VI (who knows - maybe Virgin Islands).

                          Thus, one needs to say Bain Capital (et. al).

     First of all, let U.S. talk common sense. Do you really believe any person smart enough to build a vast fortune, simply just walked away and let his workers have it all?

                    Of course not - your retain ownership until you are paid in full.  

     Secondly, staying with the common sense thingy, Mitt Romney was at the Olympics and it was not altruistic. He was helping his home/ Church state (very important ladies & gentlemen) not look bad. This had a co-benefit for Bain. It is now common knowledge that he pushed contracts towards Bain Capital (like offering Office Depot $1 million to get out of their contract so Staples could get it). That his Olympic records are destroyed (because that is what crooks do - they destroy the evidence).

     We also know his staff bought his computer hard drives and destroyed that evidence too. it is now public knowledge. Long ago, we gave evidences to everyone where his "Real" monies are hid Off Shore (Sankaty/ Bermuda) and that such is NOT part of his "Blind Family Trusts". But all the press was only focusing on the Cayman Islands. Tim Russert questioned him on Sankaty. But he's no longer with us, to see where that interview in 2007 - would have went today. Thanks to Vanity Fair, those questions started again.


  In eToys, Bain Capital's secret (illegal) law firm (MNAT)
                                   destroyed the evidence also - in the beginning of the case



John McCain 200 Page File

       For corroborative proof No. 1, we motive, means & opportunity issue that Mitt Romney would not let go of Bain Capital until he was paid in full. He has confessed that he still gets paid millions of dollars each year from Bain Capital. So that is proof from the horses mouth.

      No 2, we have the fact that eToys was acquired by Bain Capital/ Kay Bee Toys in 2001. As denoted by the Wall Street Journal. We already have Paul Traub, Barry Gold and MNAT's confessions in the public record - that they lied under oath. You can see one of the Wall Street Journal articles on that issue (here).

      As for the 3rd corroborative proof leading us to no4 that Mitt Romney was CEO of Bain Capital until 2001; we need look no further than John McCain's 200 pager (proof 3) to battle Mitt Romney in 2007/ 2008.  You can view it online at Scribd or download it (if you haven't already) [here]. On page 135 you have a reference to a 2001 Boston Globe article by Stephanie Ebbert and Yvonne Abraham entitled "Camps Spor Over Romney Word Choice," (The Boston Globe, 10/31/02). Which states reference to our proof item No 4;

Romney Served As CEO Of Bain Capital Through August 2001, Even Though He No Longer Ran Daily Operations. “Although he gave up running day-to-day operations at the venture capital firm in order to head the Salt Lake Winter Olympics, he remained CEO and held his financial interest in the company through August 2001.” (Stephanie Ebbert and Yvonne Abraham, “Camps Spar Over Romney Word Choice,” The Boston Globe, 10/31/02)

Side Note - Mitt Romney claimed to close "Tax Loop Holes"

        Given the extent of his royal high'n'ass massive lies, flip-flops and acts of bad faith; I believe this note from McCain's 200 pager (on pages 45/46) - is ironic. Mitt Romney claimed he closed "tax loop holes". It is strange that the main stream has not yet pounced on this.
Romney Implemented Policies To Close “Corporate Loopholes” – Changes Widely Described As Tax Increases. “Mr. Romney says he did not raise taxes, but some critics say that is not entirely accurate. There was 47 no broad-based tax increase – no change in the income tax, sales tax or gas tax – but Mr. Romney did increase some fees, and he instituted changes that he called closing corporate tax loopholes, which some consider a euphemism for raising corporate taxes.” (Pam Belluck, “Romney Candidacy Puts Massachusetts Economy in Spotlight,” The New York Times, 3/16/07)

        There's a much larger story out there begging to be told. Mitt Romney is rummored to have claimed to close tax loop holes for Off Shore Tax Havens. (But I've got enough on my hands already).

Yeah, I know, more than twenty (20)

   It is just in case someone wants to pick me apart that one article here - quoted another article issue (similar) there. We gave you 25 - though you really only need 1 - that is iron clad. Be that as it may - here are some more apropos issues;

Glenn Kessler at WaPo is biased for Romney – here's his Fact Check (bull [c]hit)

NOTE: The Advisors is ADA (Barry Gold & Paul Traub)
In the KB Toys scenario, no independent committee was created. Although a financial advisor was retained to perform diligence and provide a solvency opinion, the Trust alleges that Bain was heavily involved in the process, and that the final outcome was a foregone conclusion due to Bain’s integral involvement and influence. ADA and Romney's Sankaty worked some cases together.

Mitt Romney left Bain Capital (?when?) - the Lie changes to fit the need of the moment Pathologically

Delaware Chancery Court 2006 item with Big Lots/ Bain Capital

WSJ article – worth little (Romney/ Bain Cap law firm Ropes & Gray - resides in same building as WSJ Law Blog personnel. The WSJ censors actually block me and names like eToys, Paul Traub etc)

LORINOV Blog at Wordpress - Evidence against Romney Grows

It appears Romney was the CEO of Bain Capital and during that time frame he signed at least 6 documents that the corporation filed with the SEC

Back in Feb 1999 when Romney said he retired from Bain he told the Boston Herald that he was planning to “stay on as a part-timer with Bain.” WTF? Romney went on to add that as a part-timer he  would provide “input on investments and key personnel decisions…but leave the day to day operations to Bain’s executive committee.” That is something he should have stated on documents he signed prior to throwing his hat into the POTUS ring. And there’s more! In 2002 an employee of Bain told the
Boston Globe that he “reported DIRECTLY to Mitt Romney…” WTF?

Huffington Post Article corroborates the issues.

Here are my most current (prior) articles on this subject (here) & (here)


Associated Press - Points Out Romney Met Often with Bain Execs

      Verifying the fact that what Mitt Romney claims is specious, when it comes to the "actual" time line of him giving up control as Bain Capital CEO, the Associated Press has this apropos detailed story "FACT CHECK: Romney Met Bain Partners After Exit" - that states;
Those familiar with Romney's discussions with his Bain partners said the contacts included several meetings in Boston, the company's home base, but were limited to matters that did not affect the firm's investments or other management decisions. Yet Romney continued to oversee his partnership stakes even as he disengaged from the firm, personally signing or approving a series of corporate and legal documents through the spring of 2001, according to financial reports reviewed by The Associated Press

Mitt Romney's own Biography States he was CEO of Bain Capital 2001


Mitt Romney's 2007 Biographyin the book the "Real Romney" by Michael Kranish - that stated;
Full Name: Willard Mitt Romney Party: Republican Political Office: Governor of Massachusetts, 2003-2007 Business/Professional Experience: Pres., Salt Lake Organizing Committee (for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games), 1999-2002;
 CEO, venture capital/leveraged buyout firm Bain Capital, 1984-2001

Date of Birth: March 12, 1947 Place of Birth: Detroit, MI Education: B.A., Brigham Young University, 1971; J.D., Harvard University, 1975; M.B.A., Harvard University, 1975 Spouse: married Ann Davies, 1969 Children: son Taggart, born 1970; son Matthew, b. 1971; son Joshua, b. 1975; son Benjamin, b. 1978; son Craig, b. 1981 Religion: Mormon Home: Belmont, MA


       President Obama's 2012 Campaign offices have "compliance" officers. Attorneys who look at issues of liability, fact, allegations and more (I know, I've talked to his campaign offices). Though it has taken them awhile to find documentation - independent - of my allegations that Mitt Romney was CEO of Bain Capital in 2001 - they do have it upon the campaign websites. Though I do find it odd that President Obama's campaign named one of them "Keeping GOP Honest" - when that is almost impossible to do. It quotes WaPo stories and Boston Globe (cited above) and the New York Times story "Buyout Monies Keep Flowing to Romney" denoting that Mitt Romney "never" really left Bain [Capital];
•Romney was head of Bain Capital when the firm took control of the Kansas City plant in 1993.

•Romney “remained CEO and held his financial interest in the company through August 2001,” which includes the period “when the Kansas-based GST Steel plant was shut down and workers laid off” in February of 2001. [Source: Boston Globe]

•Romney claims to have severed ties with his firm in 1999, but, as the Washington Post notes, he maintained full sole ownership until 2001.

•Romney was listed on multiple Bain filings in 2001 and 2002, still functioning as a general partner in several of the firm’s funds.

•Romney continues to get a share of the firm’s profit now, bringing the Romney family millions of dollars each year. As the New York Times notes, “when it came to his considerable personal wealth, Mr. Romney never really left Bain.”

    Again, I've been telling everyone about these issues for a decade. I've fought Bain Capital power and corruption for 11 1/2 years. I've made some dents. Law firms were closed, Marc Dreier law firm has it's owners in jail for 20 years (involved in eToys & Kay Bee Toys cases) as he was partners with Mitt Romney's illegal cohort Paul Traub.

   Also, another partner of Mitt Romney's secret friend Paul Traub - is Tom Petters. Who owned Sun Country Airlines, PCI, UBid, Fingerhut and Polaroid - WITH Paul Traub. Tom Petters is now doing 50 years in prison. He, along with Marc Dreier - are praying that Mitt Romney gets in and Paul Traub (or a friend of his) - will be picked to be Attorney General of the United States.

    There's so much more here, but it boils back down to this simple fact. Mitt Romney has now admitted that he was CEO of Bain Capital until August 2001. He "claims" that he "retroactively" retired back to February 1999. His proof is the fact that Bain Capital "says" that it is true. But there's no one coming forward from Bain Capital and saying "I was in charge".

    We all know that a ship cannot have 2 Captains. It doesn't steer properly. It is also common sense that Mitt Romney did Not give up the "ownership" of Bain Capital - until he maximizes the monies to be paid out of it.

Paul Traub and Barry Gold worked for Mitt Romney at Stage Stores

      As is denoted by the Wall Street Journal story July 2005, Paul Traub confessed that he lied to the Chief Federal Justice in the eToys case about his (secret) connections to his partner Barry Gold. The MNAT law firm also confessed it lied about being Goldman Sachs attorney. MNAT was able to ask for and receive the court's permission toDestroy the Books & Recordsof eToys in the "beginning" of the case - because Paul Traub (purportedly working for the creditors) - did not Object.

      But, Mr. Traub and MNAT had a secret, they put in Barry Gold as eToys CEO and they are ALL Lying about another issue - that they are ALL connected to Bain Capital.  Barry Gold and Michael Glazer (who is CEO of Kay Bee Toys) - both worked for Mitt Romney at Stage Stores bankruptcy in 2000. Then Paul Traub as Creditors protector and Barry Gold as eToys protector - sold eToys basically for Free to Michael Glazer Kay Bee Toys. They were able to confess to 34 acts of Perjury and not get investigated and / or prosecuted - because a MNAT law firm partner was made US Attorney August 2, 2001

The very same time Mitt Romney claims to have "retroactively" retired as CEO

Mitt Romney cannot allow you to know that Bain Capital is guilty of massive frauds and federal corruption in the eToys federal case.
      They are especially worried, because the evidences are coming forward - so much so - that others are starting to cover their rears. The Federal Trustee in the Tom Petters Ponzi scheme case just named Paul Traub as the "controller" of that Ponzi scheme (Please see Minnesota Star Tribune article (here) and NOTE that it mentions eToys). There's this article - too (here); which points out that Paul Traub was partners with the other fraudster Marc Dreier and that he still owns Polaroid.

 Can Al Capone "retroactively" retire from his Bain Cap. crimes because Nitti said he did so?

                                                         Of Course NOT!

    Mitt Romney's Olympic records are Destroyed
         Governor Hard Drive Evidences Paid $90,000 to Crush
                    Refuses to Release Any Tax Returns from 1999 to 2009
                               Mitt Romney lied about when he was CEO of Bain Capital

              If the main stream reports the eToys 2001 facts - his new name will be

                                          Mitt the 5th

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
