Did Mitt Romney know that the host of his now infamous videotaped fundraiser had such a scandalous past? Private equity tycoon Marc Leder is well known in for throwing bacchanalian parties, according to the New York Post, including several this summer at his Bridgehampton estate. During one particularly debauched bash, guests reportedly “cavorted nude in the pool and performed sex acts.” In July, Russell Simmons and ex-wife Kimora Lee attended a slightly more tame party hosted by Leder, who is an event chair for Simmons’ Art For Life charity, though a witness said there was nude swimming in the wee hours. There was no streaking at Leder’s fundraiser for Romney in Boca Raton last May, where the GOP nominee talked about the entitled “47 percent” of Americans who are Obama supporters.
