Mitt Romney think it's very unfair that the American people expect full financial disclosure before they place you in the most powerful office in the world, and he wants to know why no one asked Teresa Heinz Kerry to release her returns.
“John Kerry ran for president,” Mitt Romney said Monday morning on “Fox & Friends.” “You know, his wife, who has hundreds of millions of dollars, she never released her tax returns. Somehow, this wasn’t an issue.”
Why would you go out of your way to compare yourself to the failed presidential bid of John Kerry? Is Romney running for First Lady?
John Kerry released 20 years of tax returns, by the way.
What could possibly be in Romney's returns that's so bad he's willing to suffer the political consequences of not releasing them? My personal theories range from paying zero taxes for several years, to laundering money, to hiding vast sums of income to avoid tithing to the Mormon church. Perhaps there is something in them he doesn't want his family to know about.
As long as Romney refuses to disclose it, we can only speculate. All we know for certain is that it must be something really bad.
The first person to report what he's hiding wins a Pulitzer.
