A tough week for Mitt Romney could have gotten worse today, as there have been discrepancies about the exact date of the presidential candidate's departure from Bain Capital. He claims that he resigned in 1999, but recent SEC filings from the firm, published by the Boston Globe, state that he left in 2002. This discrepancy has provided further ammunition for the Democrats in a week that's seen the race for the White House grow nastier and nastier.

Takeaway correspondent Todd Zwillich discusses the implications of Romney's Bain record, as well as other news from this week.
