According to Romney legend — and to this official history on Bain's website  — "Mr. Romney left Bain & Company in 1992 to return to Bain Capital."

But the government documents obtained by Rolling Stone reveal that Romney remained in an official capacity with Bain & Company well into 1993, and that he was intimately involved in finessing the firm's bailout.

This March 11, 1993 document detailing the final proposal for FDIC's bailout of Bain lists "Mit Romney" [sic] as the sole entry under "principals" for the consulting firm.
