|FactCheck.org's felony flip-flop

The first one to bring up the word felony was FactCheck.org:
In fact, if the Obama campaign were correct, Romney would be guilty of a federal felony by certifying on federal financial disclosure forms that he left active management of Bain Capital in February 1999.
So the Obama camp says ok, maybe Romney committed a felony.
So then FactCheck consults an expert to put an end to all this "felony" nonsense. (why didn't they need an expert the first time?)
But we see little new in any of these SEC filings, and a University of Pennsylvania Law School professor we spoke to sees no basis for the Obama campaign’s claim that Romney committed a felony.
