DNC Chair Doubles Down on ‘Felony’ Charge Against Romney
If the Obama campaign was hoping to move past the hysterical overreach of Stephanie Cutter’s outrageous “felon” charge against Mitt Romney last week, it’s just been extended for a few more days. DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was on MSNBC this morning and, when confronted with the irresponsibilty of the accusation, chose to double down :
What Stephanie [Cutter] said, rightfully so, is that either Mitt Romney was lying on SEC forms and misrepresenting to his investors — which could be a felony — that he was the sole owner, president, CEO of Bain Capital from 1999 until almost the end of 2001, or he wasn’t and represented that he was.
You know, it can’t be both. … Refusing to, you know, release his tax returns when he clearly has investments in Swiss bank accounts, investments in a Bermuda corporation which, by the way, he turned over to his wife’s control the day before he became governor.
