On September 27 Justin Ruben, Executive Director, MoveOn.org Political Action sent a legal memo to Jack Smith, Esq., Chief Public Integrity Section U.S. Department of Justice.
The seven page memo concluded:
“The facts known about Gov. Romney’s role in Bain Capital entities after 1999 strongly suggest that Gov. Romney made a false statement in violation of the False Statements Act in categorically asserting, in 2011, on his Financial Disclosure Form, that since February 1999, he had not been involved in the operations of any Bain Capital entity in any way. At a minimum, the facts call out for a full investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice.”
The memo was written by Joseph E. Sandler. Mr. Sandler is a member of the firm Sandler, Reiff, Young & Lamb, P.C., in Washington, D.C., concentrating in campaign finance, election law, non-profit organizations, government ethics and regulation of lobbying, and corporate and tax issues affecting political and advocacy activities.
