(WHAS11) -- The man who secretly shot video of former presidential candidate Mitt Romney talking at a Republican fundraiser has come forward.

Scott Prouty was bar-tending the night of the fundraiser where Romney commented that 47percent of Americans think the government has a responsibility to take care of them and view themselves as victims.

At the time of the fundraiser Prouty did not have a car and was worried what releasing the tapes would do to his career. In an interview with MSNBC he apologized to his former employer

The liberal magazine Mother Jones eventually released the tapes which changed the face of the campaign.

Romney's detractors used those comments to show that he was out of touch with regular Americans.

Prouty says he bears no grudge against Romney as a politician he was more interested in what he had to say as a voter.
