Mitt Romney, US presidential candidate in 2012, was head of this company when fraud was committed. When the fraud was reported to the US Department of Justice (2001), he 'retroactively retired'(1999) to conceal his involvement and avoid investigation. President George W. Bush's appointment of a lawyer from this company's secret law firm as a US Attorney guaranteed Romney would not be investigated despite public docket records, FEC and SEC filings showing that he profited from corruption, fraud and racketeering.
