“Nobody accused Mr. Romney of being a felon,” President Obama said during a rare conversation with the White House press corps today.

Obama was defending his campaign from charges that he is being too negative. “We point out sharp differences between the candidates, but we don’t go out of bounds,” he added.

Obama’s campaign spokeswoman raised the possibility that Romney committed a felony on documents pertaining to his career at Bain Capital.

“Either Mitt Romney, through his own words and his own signature was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the SEC, which is a felony, or he was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American people to avoid responsibility for some of the consequences of his investments,” Stephanie Cutter told reporters in July.
