Mitt Romney Watch Thread

New Romney Scandal a Major Campaign Threat


The problem with Mitt Romney is he appears to only do those things that will enhance his public image or personal fortunes. A guy like that will never let ethics stand in the way of a good payday. No matter who gets hurt. Take this latest scandal, which started on the Daily Beast and then was quickly removed.

The Daily Beast reports the donor, New Jersey travel-company executive Sead Dizdarevic, became an immunized witness during the 2003 trial stemming from the Olympic bribery scandal.

He testified at the corruption trial of Salt Lake Olympic directors Tom Welch and David Johnson that he and his sister-in-law had delivered $131,000 in cash contributions to the defendants in hopes of securing an exclusive Olympic hospitality contract.

The Daily Beast says now Dizdarevic, his family, his company and his business associates have donated more than $1 million to Romney's campaign." More at above link.

Ensign Peaks, it will be remembered, is the massive slush fund that Mormon Church leaders created when they sold off the Church's numerous business holdings.

Reportedly, Tullis has the dubious distinction of having been sanctioned by the United States Office of Comptroller and Currenc
