(FORTUNE) – Mitt Romney did not manage Bain Capital's investments after leaving to run the Salt Lake City Olympic Games, according to confidential firm documents obtained by Fortune.
The timing of Romney's departure from Bain became a lightning rod earlier today, when The Boston Globe published an article suggesting that Romney remained actively involved with the firm longer than he and his campaign have claimed. The sourcing is largely SEC documents that list Romney as Bain Capital's CEO and sole shareholder through 2002 - or three years after Romney officially left to run the Salt Lake City Olympic Games.
Grand Junction, Colorado (CNN) – Mitt Romney challenged Democratic claims that the private equity firm he once headed had actively advised companies to outsource jobs, and turned the criticism back on President Barack Obama calling him the "outsourcer in chief" Tuesday.
Speaking before an energetic crowd in friendly territory of Mesa County, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee addressed negative attacks in ads about his corporate background in his opening remarks, rather than wait for a question to be asked during the question and answer portion of the town hall.
