More entanglements between Romney businesses and Romney politics

We’ve written before about the overlap between Romney family finances and the Romney campaign.

Several investors in Tagg Romney’s company, Solamere Capital, are also contributors to the Romney’s campaign.

Turns out that Tagg is not the only Romney son with potential conflicts.

Matt Romney is a senior VP with Excel Trust, a California-based real estate company that owns shopping centers across the country.

The New York Times reported that the younger Romney traveled to Moscow last week in search of investors.

As the Times delicately noted: “Mr. Romney’s trip a week before the presidential election underscored the complex relationship between his family’s business and the political campaign.”

Matt Romney reportedly told a Russian with access to President Vladimir Putin that despite campaign rhetoric, his father hoped for good relations between the countries if he’s elected.
