17. very, very, very nicely done, berni!
and thank you!
The only problem is that John King of CNN says there's nothing to see here. As I posted on another thread:
Another Bain Democrat who did not want to be identified by name said Romney had no role after taking the Olympics post.
"Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. He was just gone. And it happened very suddenly. ... After that, he was not on calls or writing memos. He was gone."
To be clear, all four of the sources voiced professional loyalty and personal respect for Romney. And all four have a vested interest in defending the work of Bain. But they were consistent in describing Romney's departure as abrupt and in saying they could not recall him around the office in the months that followed.
Two highly reputable arbiters of political debate -- The Washington Post's fact-checking arm and FactCheck.org -- also on Thursday stood by their earlier findings that Romney stepped away from any active role at Bain when he accepted the Olympics post. And Fortune reported that it obtained private Bain documents that support the Romney account.
So be sure to send your findings to someone who doesn't think that talking to four people who have a vested interest in Bain, and who thinks that Romney's not being seen around the office must mean that he wasn't involved in the firm any more, counts as in-depth research.
