Mitt’s $50 Million Abortion Secret

Mitt Romney has been hoping, perhaps even praying, that you would never find out about his ties to the abortion industry.

He got a little nervous in January when the Huffington Post ran an article about his company’s investment in a medical waste disposal outfit that’s made millions burning fetuses collected from abortion mills.  In the interest of fairness, the article also quoted Bain Capital officials who said Romney left active involvement in their equity firm long before the purchase of Stericycle.  Supposedly he stepped down in February 1999 — about nine months before the transaction.  

As far as we can tell, Stericycle serviced its first abortion clinic in 2003, a year before Bain and its partners had completely disposed of their share of the company.  They made $49.5 million from their investment.

But investigative journalist David Corn, of MotherJones.com, has uncovered a document which Romney and others filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 22, 1999.  Page 39 of form SC-13 D lists Mitt Romney as sole stockholder, sole director, Chief Executive Officer, Managing Director and President of Bain Capital.
 
You can’t have it both ways, Mitt.  Either you stepped down from company leadership by that time or you were still the CEO.  Which story is the truth?

This is something delegates to the Republican National Convention may want to consider.  But isn’t the Romney nomination for President a done deal?  Not necessarily.  Let me explain.

The rules of the Republican Party, adopted by the National Convention on September 1, 2008 and amended by the National Committee on August 6, 2010, serve as the GOP’s constitution.  Rule 38 on page 37 states, “No delegate or alternate delegate shall be bound by any attempt of any state or Congressional district to impose the unit rule.”  

According to an article appearing in Politico.com on November 25, 2011, that means “Republicans can’t bind delegates from a state to vote only for one candidate by a winner-take-all rule ….”  The key word is “bind.”

Is this just some far out interpretation from Rob Richie and Elise Helgeson, the authors of the Op-Ed piece?  Not according to attorney Richard Gilbert, who filed a lawsuit challenging the GOP’s binding practice, which appears to violate rule 38.

Wednesday Gilbert reported on his Facebook page, “We have tentatively won the case on the historic law.  The RNC is now engaged in delay tactics.  To counter, I am filing an Appellate action tomorrow to seek an Appellate Order requiring the Judge to rule prior to the convention.“
 
The Republican Convention begins Monday, August 27th in Tampa.  It is believed Ron Paul would benefit the most if Gilbert wins the case.
