Washington Post questions Romney's contribution to '02 Olympic games

An article in the Washington Post questions Mitt Romneys role in the success of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.

Romney left his post at Bain Capital to run the Olympics after top officials resigned amid a bribery scandal and mismanagement of funds that left the games in debt. The games ended up being on of the most profitable in Winter Olympic history.

The Washington Post says that although Romney played a role in the games' eventual success, questions remain as to the extent of the financial problems that the games faced before Romney arrived. The Post also quotes individuals close to Romney as saying that he took the job to help his political resume.
