Several left-wing news outlets are reporting on a financial relationship between one of Mitt Romney’s sons and a voting machine company–with some even implying that the relationship could lead to tampering with votes on Election Day to benefit the Republican. The only problem? There doesn’t seem to be any evidence of any financial relationship between Romney’s son, Tagg, and the company.
Solamere Capital, an investment fund founded and run by Tagg Romney, is a financial partner with HIG Capital, a private equity firm that manages a whole range of investments. HIG also invests in Hart Intercivic, a polling machine company that operates machines at polling places in Hamilton County, Ohio. But Solamere does not have any financial interest in Hart, a spokesman for Solamere tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD.
