One of Mitt Romney’s biggest selling points during the election was his business savvy and his team’s professional experience.
While he was not convincing enough to win, but that was not because his team lacked in efficiency.
One of his staffers, however, apparently waited until the former Governor officially lost the election to make a clerical error in (presumably) leaking the link to the candidate’s transition website accidentally.
On Wednesday, Roll Call’s Political Wire posted screen grabs of some of the pages from the website that Romney and Paul Ryan would have released had they won the election.
‘I’m excited about our prospects as a nation. My priority is putting people back to work in America,’ the large quote says.
It shows links to information about the would-be inauguration (taking place in Washington, DC on January 21, 2013) and his vision of a ‘smaller, simpler, smarter’ America.
There are three other pages, titled ‘Join the Administration’, ‘The President-Elect’ which goes into further detail about the inauguration, and ‘The Nominees’ which briefly describes the process of electing a cabinet.
Unfortunately for political junkies, the nominees page cuts off before any actual nominees are identified, so the page does not give any true insight into the way that the Romney-Ryan team would have proceeded with their transition.
Political Wire does not explain how they found the site or how long it was live, only saying that it was taken down quickly.
