A bunch of legal scholars and securities lawyers have been coming out and saying that Romney hasn’t technically committed a felony crime. Sure, having a title doesn’t mean you have a legal obligation to a certain level of managerial tasks. But…
Voters don’t give a shit. They care that Romney was officially CEO and they care that he got $100,000 a year salary from this job position. If he wasn’t paying attention to what was going down in his own company, he’s still up for criticism for neglect.
There’s no way he can back away gracefully from this one.
