Why was Bain Capital Outsourcing jobs to India and China when Mitt Romney was Governor of Massachusetts?
Mitt Romney is running on his record of creating jobs as both the Governor of Massachuetes and as an executive at Bain Capital. But a 2002 article from the Boston Business Journal reveals that his former company Bain Capital was outsourcing jobs to India and China at the same time Romney was Governor.
