Mitt, meet EDGAR. Hammer, meet nail.

Mitt, meet EDGAR. Hammer, meet nail. (IRONIC UPDATE)

by 8ackgr0und N015

"Excuse me, Mr. Romney, but I believe this is your signature...."

<...>

Before you start stepping on the links and go running off down the rabbit-hole, read the synopsis of what you will find. It will save you time and make your adventures more productive. If you know how to use EDGAR -- have at it. Romney is the Reporting Person on all the filings : )

<...>

These forms are not filed anonymously. They are signed by someone known as the REPORTING PERSON. You can pretend corporations are persons all day long, but at the end of the day some ACTUAL person has to SIGN the documents. That is the person the IRS will want to talk to if things look suspicious. That is the person who will be deposed if there is a lawsuit. That is the person who will be called to testify to the authenticity of the documents if things wind up in court. That is the person who could easily wind up in jail if there is criminal activity. The Reporting Person is not a bystander. They are a central player. They are responsible for the accuracy and reliability of what is being reported to the SEC.

<...>

In the case of the forms noted here, the Reporting Person is "W. Mitt Romney" -- on ALL of the forms.

The media is currently focusing just on Bain Capital, but there is more to the story. We are also talking about Bain Capital's shell companies (Like Bain Capital Investors IV, AKA "BCI IV"). These had SIGNIFICANT OWNERSHIP AND CONTROL of various companies. And the guy signing for all this? W. Mitt Romney, "a citizen of the United States, as the sole stockholder of BCI VI Inc."

Don't take my word for this. Step on those links above, then follow the link labeled as the Complete submission text file. Search that text file for "Romney" and you will find W. Mitt Romney listed at top as one of the Group Members and down in the document as Reporting Person. It ain't rocket science. It took me longer to format the table above than it did to find the reports.

Here's the bottom line: If Mitt thinks he is going to use a shell corporation as a fig leaf to play "I did not have any relations with Bain Capital" we don't have to have any confusion about what "any relations" means. He signed the documents. We don't need to look for additional witnesses or whistleblowers. He signed the documents. He can whine all he wants and hold his breath as long as he likes. But the fact remains... no on is going to apologize for raising this and no one is going to ignore this. He.Signed.The.Documents.

4. This is snowballing out of control

David Corn said he's received so much information just on the Bain issue alone that it would keep 100 lawyers sifting through it until November. Obama campaign lawyer Ben Bauer indicated to ABC News that they should stay tuned for more to come on the Bain issue.

Maybe Romney won't voluntarily quit and maybe we're not close to that point yet, but there may come a time when Rove sees the GOP gravy train running off a cliff and decides to cut his losses. Depending on what else is out there, Romney may be politely but firmly told to quit to spend more time with his family.
