I think what you will read below is an example of some of the things that Mitt Romney doesnt want us to know about. There is a TON more on Romney that
was apparently released some time ago but is just being found. Supposedly this was the info that Senator McCain had on Romney during the last election
cycle. I will let you be the judge. I know I dont want this guy running the country. While I will never condone cheating on your spouse I cannot
condone cheating the taxpayers with healtcare fraud and then vote for the guy expecting him to do his best for us. The rest of the PDF can be found
and dowloaded here--> news.yahoo.com...
Romney Was Board Member Of Company Fined Over $100 For Medicare Fraud – At The Time, It Was The Largest Criminal Fine For Health Care Fraud In
Romney Sat On Board Of Damon Clinical Laboratories, A Bain Capital Portfolio Company Fined Nearly $120 Million In 1996 Due To Medicare Fraud. “A
Needham clinical laboratory agreed yesterday to pay $119 million in criminal and civil fines after pleading guilty to charges that it defrauded the
nation’s Medicare system by seeking reimbursements on millions of dollars worth of unnecessary blood tests. … Damon Clinical Laboratories Inc.
admitted it tried to boost its profits by submitting the unnecessary tests. The company, the government said, misled doctors into ordering the tests,
ensuring that they would be covered by Medicare, the federal health care program for the elderly.

Romney Tries To Take Credit: “Mr. Romney said yesterday that he aided in uncovering and stopping the fraud one year before the sale. … Mr. Romney
said board members, including himself … had started an inquiry that led to the disclosure.”

“Romney Has Said He Helped Uncover The Fraud But Never Reported It To Authorities.”
(Tom Benner, “O’Brien Sees Savings Possible In Budget,” The Patriot Ledger [Quincy, MA], 10/23/02)
Federal Investigators Rebuffed Romney’s Claims, Saying The Fraud Continued Until Bain And Other Owners Sold Damon To Corning In 1993.
“A spokesman for Romney, Eric Fehrnstrom, said Thursday that Romney and other board members helped uncover the fraud at Damon after similar
fraudulent practices were found at another laboratory in 1992. … But court records, including statements by prosecutors and by Damon officials,
indicated that the fraud continued until Corning purchased the firm. Prosecutors gave Corning sole credit for cleaning up the fraud.”
