There are two faces of Romney -- the one he wants to show the public, and the real Mitt, who was outsourcing jobs, raiding companies, and laying off workers as CEO of Bain Capital, just so he could line the pockets of his already-rich investors.

Looks like Scott Brown worked as a real estate attorney and title agent for the parent company of a company named LPS, which happened to be one of the very worst offenders in the foreclosure fraud industry.
