re: #141 Killgore Trout

There’s no evidence he played an active role. All we have is a passive role, signed some documents but was not making decisions or running the company. Although he may have retained the ability there’s no evidence he used that ability.

There’s also no evidence that he played a totally passive role. For that, you would need someone, or a group of people, to step forward and claim responsibility for the decisions that happened during the period in question. And it would have to be at least reasonably clear that they were not seeking Romney’s approval for their decisions.

Which is why, again, I’m surprised that there haven’t been any such people coming forward from Bain yet. That would seem to be the easiest way to knock this on the head.
