Is This SEC Document The Hardest One For Romney To Explain?

With the Romney campaign aggressively pushing back against reports that the candidate's tenure at Bain Capital lasted longer than he once claimed, one 2000 document filed by Romney could prove particularly difficult to explain away.

(Bain Capital Investors VI)" — and it contains his signature. That stands in contrast with various financial disclosure forms filed by Romney in recent years claiming that he left the company entirely to run the Salt Lake City Olympics in 1999. H/T James Carter, who sent the document to BuzzFeed.
