Mitt Romney Tells Business Leaders To ‘Talk’ Election With Staff: AUDIO

Romneymoney

Mitt Romney didn't explicitly tell the right-wing National Federation of Independent Business to tell employees to vote for him when he said "[talk] to your employees about what you believe is best for the business," but it sure sounds like he did.

Here's transcript of the audio of a June gathering, via ThinkProgress:

I hope you make it very clear to your employees what you believe is in the best interest of your enterprise and therefore their job and their future in the upcoming elections. And whether you agree with me or you agree with President Obama, or whatever your political view, I hope — I hope you pass those along to your employees.

[There's] nothing illegal about you talking to your employees about what you believe is best for the business, because I think that will figure into their election decision, their voting decision and of course doing that with your family and your kids as well.
