Romney attacked on Bain exit date

Obama campaign says he lied about when he left firm

President Obama’s reelection campaign Thursday accused Mitt Romney of lying — and perhaps of breaking federal law — after the Globe reported that government documents listed him as in charge of the private equity firm he founded, Bain Capital, three years longer than he has previously stated.

The Romney campaign called such statements by the Obama team reckless and asked the Globe to print a correction, which it has declined to do.
