A Florida bartender claimed Wednesday to be the man behind the video that showed GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney slandering "47 percent" of the country, CBS News said.
The bartender, whose name will not be released until an MSNBC interview set to air Wednesday night, was working with the catering company hired for the event Romney spoke at, USA Today said.
He credited his footage to former President Bill Clinton, who had made an effort to thank the kitchen staff at an event the bartender previously worked at, CBS News said. He had hoped bringing his camera would result in a photo of the GOP candidate and him, though it resulted in much more than that.
In a post-election interview, Romney said, "there's no question [the footage] hurt and did real damage to my campaign," according to USA Today.
