Hey, remember when Nevada Senator Harry Reid said that he heard from an anonymous source that Mitt Romney didn't pay taxes for ten years? This story is the gift that keeps giving. RNC Chair Reince "The Preince" Priebus called Harry Reid a "dirty liar" over the weekend on a Sunday news show. At the same time, former Bachmann aide and Reagan campaign director Ed Rollins said that Romney needs to put his returns out, because it's “going to dog him all the way and he needs to get it behind him."
Another interesting argument is circling Twitter, too: Of all the Republicans who are defending Romney or demanding that Romney release his taxes, there are a few voices that are completely absent from the debate. The people with the most knowledge of the issue—besides Romney himself, of course—are A. B. Culvahouse and Rick Davis, who saw 23 years' worth of Romney's tax returns during the VP vetting process in 2008 as aides for the McCain campaign. They are keeping quiet. Some might say...too quiet.
This debate is not going away. Unless something changes, it will continue through Election Day. There's only one man who can completely resolve this argument. His name is Mitt Romney, and he just has to release his tax returns to the public. Considering the fact that his tax returns have been a serious, damaging issue for over a month now, these things must be really terrible.
