Obama adviser tweets:"..... When it comes to secrecy, Mitt takes the gold!"
(CBS News) After a brief respite from election-year partisanship following Friday's mass shooting in Colorado, Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod was back on offense Monday morning, tweeting out a series of articles about Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, whom he cast as a secret-keeper of Olympic calendar.
"Tax returns. Bundlers. Bain. MA records & now key docs from Olympics. When it comes to secrecy, Mitt takes the gold!" Axelrod tweeted, linking to a story from ABC News.
Not long after Axelrod posted his tweets, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) blasted out a CNN story about Romney's "other tax secret." The Obama campaign also has a conference call scheduled for later this morning about Romney's scheduled trip overseas.
Mitt Romney Olympic Archive Still Off-Limits
More than a decade has passed since Mitt Romney presided over the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, but the archival records from those games that were donated to the University of Utah to provide an unprecedented level of transparency about the historic event, remain off limits to the public. And some of the documents that may have shed the most light on Romney's stewardship of the Games were likely destroyed by Salt Lake Olympic officials, ABC News has learned.
The archivists involved in preparing the documents for public review told ABC News that financial documents, contracts, appointment calendars, emails and correspondence are likely not included in the 1,100 boxes of Olympic records, and will not be part of the collection that will ultimately be made public.
"We don't have that stuff," said Elizabeth Rogers, the manuscript curator at the University's Marriott Library. The decisions about what records to donate to the library were made by Olympics officials before they were shipped in 1,100 boxes to the university, she said. "That was done before we got it. I just know it wasn't a decision we made. Everything we have will be available."
The Romney campaign said it has made no effort to prevent the archive from being made public.

1. Most dishonest candidate in history. Tricky Mitt is even worse than Nixon.
And people want to give that guy the key to the White House?
We can save a lot of taxpayer money by not electing him. Because if we have a Democratic control of Senate and Congress, we'll just have to impeach his ass for all of the backroom dirty dealings, and corporate giveways, and the deals he's cutting with the countries how are now hiding his money.
