Problem installing a hitch - bolt won't align

Last weekend I was trying to install an aftermarket Curt hitch. I could not get the driver side bolt closest to the bumper to line up. When I pulled everything down and looked at the bolt in the hole I saw that the bolt was rubbing against the metal, you can actually see metal filings come off the bolt. It doesn't look like the hole was punched round. When I compared that to the other side everything looks normal. You can see the two images below. The service tech said they looked at it, compared it to another vehicle, and that it's normal. It doesn't look normal to me.
