Skip to comments.Emails That Romney Tried to Hide Are Revealed
Posted on 06/05/2012 2:51:31 PM PDT by Erik Latranyi
Once-secret emails from Mitt Romney's time as governor that were revealed today spurred a flurry of comments about the candidate's support for the so-called individual mandate. Yet there's another issue that's been revived: Romney's secrecy.
When Romney left the governor's office in Massachusetts, his staff erased all the emails from a computer server and bought the hard drives used to store data, so that their correspondence would stay hidden.
Or so they thought.
Tom Trimarco, Romney's administration and finance secretary, never deleted his emails. Some of them surfaced today in The Wall Street Journal, which submitted a public information request for emails involving Trimarco and officials in the administration.
The emails show that Romney was neck-deep in negotiations to get his health care bill passed, that he personally wrote op-eds about it, and that he defended the so-called individual mandate to buy health insurance, a provision in President Obama's law that has drawn criticism from Republicans.

he has ‘EVOLVED’
or I certainly hope so....
Milt to felon DiMasi: "I bet you $10,000 that I can fool the GOPe ALL of the time."
Oh, wait, I forgot...
They don't cover Obama.
How is this news? Conservative oppose Romneycare. Liberals love socialized medicine.
It’s a non-starter except to try to persuade conservatives to stay home on election day.
Romney is not a savior for America but he isn’t a lifelong red diaper doper baby with a chip on his shoulder RESENTING everything about this country.
yeah but does he still beat his wife?
Wake me up when ABC is interested in Barry’s secret college applications & transcripts.
just can’t understand why HE can’t seal every record of everything, if it’s good enough for the goose.....
So you’d prefer Obama?
What’s really funny is that this might convince more liberals that Romney isn’t so bad and that perhaps they could ‘safely’ vote for him if they were unhappy voting for Obama.
Press is too stupid to realize this, though.
I'm with you, but what alternative is there that has a chance of winning? We have five months to find that alternative and make him or her competitive.
So evolved that the other day he picked notoriously radical left-wing “republican” former Utah governor that has a huge financial stake in Obamacare?
Yup, we can totally believe him.
Sounds like something Obama would do.
You'll sooner walk on Mars.
There are two guys running - a douchebag liberal hump and Obama.
I'm voting for the douchebag liberal hump.
And that, I will not do.
Me too, probably.
I’ll see how i feel on election day.
Apparently the MSM feels that the best way to help Obama is to reinforce Romney’s negatives with Conservatives, and thus discourage them from actively campaigning for him.
Judging from some of the replies on this thread, it’s working.
