CNN's J.King to Wolf: Bain officials, 3 of them Democrats, verified Romney left Bain in February of 1999

Even though practically every fact-check organization in America is now firmly on the record siding with Mitt Romney's claim he left Bain Capital in February of 1999….

The report showed that Romney remained on the board of three companies, two of which had Bain connections — Staples and LifeLike Co. The report said he returned to Massachusetts “to attend meetings at Staples,” but does not mention that he attended any meetings at Bain, even as it provides a long list of social events that brought him back to Massachusetts. One would think that if Romney was trying to prove continued links to Massachusetts, he would have emphasized he kept doing work for Bain.
 In other words, an official state investigation concluded that Romney no longer worked at Bain as of early 1999, and also was working “12 hours a day, six days a week” on the Olympics from 1999 to 2002. That also would seem to trump the SEC filings. (Continues)
