In last night’s CNN debate, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney dodged accusations of having invested in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, saying they were invested through a blind trust. However, in a 1994 Senate debate with then-Sen. Ted Kennedy, Romney attacked Kennedy’s mention of his own blind trust, calling it, “not so blind.”
Romney called Kennedy’s blind trust “a ruse” and suggested that it’s not difficult to figure out where his money ended up, according to National Journal.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Romney’s foremost challenger in the Republican primaries, called Romney out for investing in Fannie and Freddie, thereby fueling the housing crisis.
