James Sims won fame and fortune as the first CEO of Cambridge Technology Partners.

Mitt RomneyHe’s now found the opposite after being outed by a Boston TV station as a tax scofflaw and subsequently separated from Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign.

WBZ‘s I-Team found that the former tech exec — and Mitt Romney operative — owed hundreds of thousands of dollars in back taxes. The damages, totted up by the I-Team, amounted to more than a half a million: $263,000 for his Beacon Hill place over three years and $266,000 for a Pebble Beach, Calif. property, going back four years.

Sims paid up when the I-team came a-calling. But in the time he owed all these taxes he also ponied up $300,000 for Romney’s campaign . Oh, yes and he worked for it. As a national campaign finance co-chair . To be fair, there are about a gagillion co-chairs, but still.

Not anymore though. Sims is now out.
