Carter grandson arranged Romney video's release

WASHINGTON (AP) - The grandson of former President Jimmy Carter says he persuaded the source who secretly taped Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney at a fundraiser to release the full video to the media.

James Carter IV of Atlanta says he was intrigued after seeing what he describes as a short, mysterious clip of Romney talking about Chinese factory conditions.

He told The Associated Press that he tracked the source down on Twitter in August and convinced them to trust a journalist at Mother Jones magazine with the clips. Mother Jones released the video on Monday.

On the video, Romney is seen telling donors that nearly half of all Americans think they're entitled to government help. He also says the Palestinians aren't interested in peace with Israel.
