Mitt Romney, Alleged 'Vulture Capitalist,' Gives Woman $50

4d37.jpg
Mitt Romney, Republican presidential frontrunner, has been called a "vulture capitalist," but recently gave an unemployed supporter at least $50 -- maybe even $60 -- according to the Spanish-language daily.

Romney met a woman named Ruth Williams, 55, on the campaign trail, El Diario reports. Williams told Romney that she lost her job in October and since had trouble paying bills.

Romney, a millionaire many times over, then gave the woman cash, sources indicate.

After his victory in the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary, at least five of Romney's opponent have criticized him for making his fortune by acquiring and reorganizing failing businesses.

Isn't there some law that says he can't do that? I think it's great that he's trying to help someone, but isn't there some law that says this sort of thing could be seen as a way to bribe a potential voter into voting for him.

FYI: I'm not voting for him, and I'm not saying this to snark. It's a genuine question, so if anyone has an answer, I'd love to know.

There is a lot more help that this woman received.  They gave her work at their campaign offices, they paid her light bill, they are doing several things to help this woman find a real job for her family.

The story of Romney and the fifty dollars is too fishy. Romney doesn't carry small bills like fifties.
