SEC looking into Romney

This is an excerpt from this morning's Boston Herald: "Federal officials are probing scathing allegations that the Romney administration falsely claimed to conduct safety inspections in the Big Dig tunnel that collapsed and killed a woman in July." Massachusetts Inspector General Gregory Sullivan has issued a report that concluded:

-The Romney administration ignored its oversight role on the Big Dig by designating its authority to review tunnel safety to a Turnpike official.

-Document requests to the Turnpike and Romney-controlled MassHighway failed to produce any documents showing maintenance was ever performed on the I-90 connector ceiling.

The question then becomes will the federal probe undermine Mitt's image has an executive who makes tough decisions and fights for the taxpayers.
