Reid Suggests Romney Did Not Pay Taxes for 10 Years
Huff Post has just posted a piece in which Harry Reid tells its reporters that an unnamed Bain investor called his office a month ago and told him there was no mystery why Romney is not releasing any more tax returns--he didn't pay any taxes for ten years. Unfortunately, the investor is not known and there's no other source so it's a little surprising that Reid is floating it. But perhaps others will step forward now. Reid added, "You guys have said his wealth is $250 million. Not a chance in the world. It's a lot more than that. I mean, you do pretty well if you don't pay taxes for 10 years when you're making millions and millions of dollars."
