Scott Prouty reveals himself as man who shot ’47 percent’ video

Scott Prouty revealed himself on MSNBC's "The Ed Show" Wednesday night as the man who shot a damaging video of Mitt Romney dismissing President Obama’s supporters during a closed-press fundraiser last year.

One of the most influential figures in the 2012 election, the bartender who secretly filmed Romney at a private fundraiser in Boca Raton, Fla., last May had been anonymous until now.

"I was behind this whole thing," Prouty said.
