Romney Got Government Bailout For Olympics, Federal Earmarks For MA
Romney was able to secure hundreds of millions of federal dollars in order to assist the Olympic committee in putting on the games in Salt Lake City in 2002. In his book about the games, Romney notes that he spent “a lot of time in D.C.” lobbying for the federal help.
The multimillionaire candidate reportedly wined and dined politicians at his personal ski chalet while attempting to loosen the federal purse strings.
Romney, who has attacked Rick Santorum for securing congressional earmarks, bragged in 2006 that “I’d be embarrassed if I didn’t always ask for federal money whenever I got the chance” after working with Ted Kennedy and John Kerry to get federal funds for the Big Dig project, according to the Washington Post.
