Mitt Romney staffers deleted emails, replaced computers, "obliterated electronic records"


Someone is trying his best to pretend his past positions and his own health care plan didn't really exist, and is doing everything he can to cover his flip floppy tracks... at least until after the 2012 election. I'm talking to you, MittFlop.

Via Think Progress:

On their way out of the governor’s office and onto the presidential campaign trail, aides to Mitt Romney almost completely obliterated their electronic records, deleting emails, purchasing hard drives, and replacing computers, a investigation by the Boston Globe found. “The governor’s office has found no e-mails from 2002-2006 in our possession,’’ an aide to the current governor, Deval Patrick, told the Globe. Meanwhile, 11 Romney aides — many of whom went on to work on Romney’s 2008 campaign — purchased their state-issued computer hard drives as they left state employment.

Like other states and the federal government, Massachusetts has a law that requires such files be preserved for the state archives.

As for the paper records they did leave behind? "They were pretty careful about what they left behind. You’re welcome to it. It’s a ton of shit.” Those would be health care reform records, by the way.
