|Bain Imposter Highlights Democratic National Convention|

President Barack Obama’s $ billion re-election campaign team hired an imposter, claiming to be a former Bain employee, to give speeches at the Democratic National Convention and appear on Obama campaign ads to attack Romney, as a so-called greedy capitalist.
According to KABC 790 Talk Radio Los Angeles, “the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday featured three speakers billed as ‘former employees of companies controlled by Bain Capital.’ They each told compelling stories about jobs lost, allegedly because of the actions of Bain under Romney’s leadership. But it turns out one of those employees never actually worked for a company controlled by Bain Capital.”
David Foster claimed that he was one of Bain’s employees on the convention schedule. He explained that 750 steelworkers lost their jobs when the Bain-controlled company, GST steel, filed for bankruptcy in the early 1990s.
KABC quotes Foster as saying that, “in 2001, with GST bankrupt and Romney still CEO of Bain, I stood in front of hundreds of steel workers in their 50s and 60s, and retirees in their 70s and 80s, and told them Romney and Bain had broken their promises. Jobs, vacation, pay, severance, health insurance and pension benefits that were promised – they were all gone.”
However, BC Huselton, who was head of HR at GST, said, “David Foster was never an employee of GST Steel’s Kansas City plant. He was employed by the United Steelworkers of America as their regional union director to represent GST Steel, but was not employed at our facility.”
