Many In Romney's "Binder Full Of Women" Were Campaign Donors

The former Massachusetts Governor touted hiring “binders full of women” for his cabinet, but many were donors to his gubernatorial campaign.

Mitt Romney answered a question at the presidential debate Tuesday on how he would close the gender pay gap by telling how he filled his cabinet with women appointees using "binders full of women" provided by women's groups.

But a cross reference of Romney's very senior positions held by women, his senior staff and cabinet heads, show that 5 of 8 positions were filled by campaign donors, suggesting that Romney did indeed surround himself with female executives, but that the outside advice had a limited effect.

3. How many of those women were actually qualified to do the job they received

And how many of them were on the list that MassGAP provide Romney. My guess is a big fat zero for both!

5. Their binders full of money were their resumes.

Or, more likely, their husband's money b/c, yanno, the little ladies needed to stay home and cook supper and restrain their kids from going on homicidal rampages.

4. What's this? Hiding that Romney DID NOT ask for the list?

Romney claims he asked for the list, he didn't, it was prepared by an outside group BEFORE THE ELECTION took place.

Many? How many is many?

Smart people donate to both sides at times to be endeared to whichever candidate wins.
