Star of Cancer Ad Joe Soptic Offered a Buy Out by Bain

Purple, Toucan, Where does truth fit into the picture? Romney left Bain 7 years before the man's wife died. He was no more responsible for her death, than you or I were. It is so far from the truth...Why doesn't this even make the discussion?

For two days we've been led to believe Bain Capital (two years after Mitt Romney officially left the company) destroyed the life of steelworker Joe Soptic by laying him off. No mention of a buyout, no mention of benefit payouts. Bain simply came in and handed workers a pink slip. Turns out, that's not the case. In an interview with Democracy Now, Soptic admits he was offered a buyout by Bain, something he has failed to mention until now.


As reminder, this is the ad.
