When I signed the SEC papers that said I was in charge of Bain companies after 1999, I was kidding. Just believe what I said after.
When I signed the papers for the Massachusettes election board saying I was still running Bain companies after 1999, I was kidding. Don't believe the Bain press releases and documents that I was still there.
Anybody can be paid checks to cash for being the chief executive for three years when I had absolutely nothing to do with Bain. It's common practice and could be part of any retirement plan.
Evidence to the contrary, just believe what I said - it's a 'faith-based' election. The media is going along with me.
