Mitt Romney made a lot of money, has a lot of money, and spends a lot of money campaigning. Now we know he also once posed with money.

The above photo shows Romney with his colleagues at Bain Capital, which provided it to The Boston Globe. The Globe reports that Romney kept things loose at Bain's office, despite the pressures of working there. After posing for a company-brochure photo, Romney and his Bain associates snapped it again with $10 and $20 bills. Romney led Bain Capital to grow from a staff of seven managing $37 million to a staff of 115 managing $4 billion, the Globe reports.

We're pretty sure twenties still fall out of Romney's suit jacket unexpectedly sometimes.
