The bartender who filmed former presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s remarks that 47 percent of people would vote for Obama “no matter what” because they are dependent on the government plans to reveal his identity today.
This comment, which had a huge effect on his candidacy and may have cost him the election, was given at a fundraiser event for wealthy Republicans in May. The filmmaker was working at the dinner and brought along the camera hoping Romney would allow the kitchen staff to take pictures with him. He did not.
The bartender says he was inspired by a past event he worked at where Bill Clinton personally thanked the entire kitchen staff after making his speech.
The bartender said: “I felt like I owed it to the people that couldn’t afford to be there themselves to hear what he really thought,” on the teaser for Ed Schultz’s show on MSNBC on Wednesday night, where he will reveal his identity.
