Mr. 47 Percent

The identity of the man who secretly recorded Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's ill-fated "47 percent" remarks was revealed on MSNBC's The Ed Show on March 13. "It was tough and I debated for a little while but in the end I really felt like it had to be put out," said Scott Prouty, who was a bartender at the event. "I felt I owed it to the people who couldn't afford to be there themselves to hear what [Romney] really thought."
