The Phoenix's David Bernstein spoke exclusively with NBC News's Politics Nation last night to unveil the juiciest twist in his new investigation into Mitt Romney's "shadow years" inside and outside of Bain. In this week's issue -- online now and on newsstands tomorrow -- Bernstein breaks the story of Romney's investments in a Bermuda casualty insurance company called Endurance Specialty.
Last week, the national media began to pick up on David Bernstein's 2007 investigation into Romney's shadow years at Bain while he was running the Salt Lake City Olympics -- and now the media is also beginning to pick up on another line of Bernstein's inquiry, which concerns potential conflicts of interest that Romney admitted to while he was in Salt Lake City.
It's true! You'd never know if from the campaign trail, but WILLARD MITT ROMNEY was actually governor of Massachusetts for a number of years, a position he obtained by making a series of arguments to voters -- Bain Capital, business leadership, etc -- that are annoyingly similar to the ones he's made as an unsuccessful candidate for president.
