WASHINGTON–Scott Prouty–that’s the name of the Florida bartender who made the Mitt Romney 47 percent video. He’s finally decided to go public, starting with an interview with MSNBC’s Ed Schultz and later with Huffington Post Washington Bureau Chief Ryan Grim. All along, he’s been talking to David Corn, the Mother Jones Washington Bureau Chief who broke the 47 percent story.

Corn writes about Prouty’s saga in his article headlined, “Meet Scott Prouty, the 47 Percent Video Source.”

From Corn: “For months, he and I shared a big secret and repeatedly discussed whether he should go public or stay hidden.”
