    Public Filings Disagree On Romney's Role At Bain Capital

    Romney "retired" from Bain Capital in 1999 and "had no active role" with the private equity firm afterwards, according to his 2011 financial disclosure. So how come a decade-old SEC filing lists Romney as the "sole shareholder, sole director, Chief Executive Officer and President" and "controlling person" on February 11, 2001?
