Romney Cuts Credit Cards Of Staffers Before The Cab Ride Home

Mitt Romney’s staffers reportedly got an unpleasant shock directly after learning their candidate did not, as expected, win the election on Tuesday night and snag the role of President — one disgruntled campaigner from the Romney’s team said campaign staff credit cards were canceled before they could even pay for their sad cab rides home.

The story of Mitt Romney’s staffers and their cut off credit cards is one that (contrasted with what is said to have been a Romney “shellshocked” at the loss he didn’t expect) seems to be an extra bit of poor sportsmanship on the part of a man said to be so certain he’d win that he didn’t write a concession speech.

The anecdote about Mitt Romney cutting staffers credit cards comes from an anonymous Romney staffer who spoke to NBC for a piece titled “The last days of Romneyland,” detailing what the network describes as an “overly rosy” outlook within a campaign that refused to see the writing on the wall.

What the tale reports on Mitt Romney’s hardworking staff and their experience heading home after dedicating blood, sweat and tears to what became a stunning loss perhaps jives with the more unpleasant assumptions held about the GOP candidate overall — mainly that he is known for viewing the little guy as dispensable once the help is no longer needed:

“From the moment Mitt Romney stepped off stage Tuesday night, having just delivered a brief concession speech he wrote only that evening, the massive infrastructure surrounding his campaign quickly began to disassemble itself … Aides taking cabs home late that night got rude awakenings when they found the credit cards linked to the campaign no longer worked.”

Mitt Romney may have cut off the credit cards of staffers or the story could just be the work of a frustrated former campaign aide, but if it did go down like that, it seems to show that as soon as Romney absorbed his loss, his first thought was to cut his losses and let staffers find their own ways home.

2. Making enemies of staffers who have behind-the-scene secrets about the campaign

and are going to be approached by publishers about writing tell all books is not too smart.

3. It was probably an aide who did it,

I don't think Romney handles such trivial things. That is for the little people to do, probably someone trying to suck up to him for a job
