    Talking Points Memo

    An email from the consulting firm Bain & Company to recent hires suggests that the presidential campaign of its alum Mitt Romney is creating headaches for the firm, particularly as it attempts to differentiate itself from Bain Capital, the private equity firm Romney helped found, which has received bad publicity in recent weeks.


    The email reviews Romney’s history with the two companies, explains how the two companies are distinct entities, and expresses pride in Romney’s accomplishments while noting that the company does not play an active role in partisan politics.

    So, shorter Bain and Co. - "We don't want (R)money stink on us, but we like what he did for us."

    Low info voters aren't going to draw a distinction between the companies. All they will see is 'Bain'.
