(Newser) – Gawker is slowly assembling an investigative report on Bain Capital, and it wants your help (though it might help if you're a tax attorney or an accountant). The site has acquired a trove of internal files that "reveal the mind-numbing, maze-like, and deeply opaque complexity" of Mitt Romney's former company, writes John Cook. And "we don't pretend to be qualified to decode them in full."
