    Romney staff spent nearly $100,000 to hide records

    WOW!! This surely donít bode well for mittens. Kinda looks like he will be next one to drop. Hopefully Huntsman will pick up up some mittens delegates and JUST MAYBE brings a little sanity to the Republican Party.

    < (Reuters) - Mitt Romney spent nearly $100,000 in state funds to replace computers in his office at the end of his term as governor of Massachusetts in 2007 as part of an unprecedented effort to keep his records secret, Reuters has learned.>

    < When Romney left the governorship of Massachusetts, 11 of his aides bought the hard drives of their state-issued computers to keep for themselves. Also before he left office, the governor's staff had emails and other electronic communications by Romney's administration wiped from state servers, state officials say.>

    < In signing the lease, Romney aides broke an earlier three-year lease that provided the same number of computers for about half the cost - $108,000. Lease documents obtained by Reuters under the state's freedom of information law indicate that the broken lease still had 18 months to run. >

    PolitiFact | Romney says he followed the law and precedent in deleting e-mails

    Our ruling

    The Romney administrationís decision to erase most electronic files is neither illegal nor unusual. According to state records officials, past governors such as Weld, Cellucci and Swift have not made their electronic records available to the state archive or to the incoming administration, according to state staff. They have submitted some computer print-outs to the state archive, but Romney did that, as well. So we rate Romney's claim True.
    Of all the dozens and hundreds of things to go after Romney on, this ain't one of them.
