TPM Slideshow: Meet Mitt Romney
On Sunday, senior Romney adviser Ed Gillespie claimed that Romney need only release two years of tax returns, in line with the precedent set by former presidential nominees John McCain and John Kerry. “It’s the standard that Sen. John Kerry as the Democratic nominee said was the standard,” Gillespie said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
This is important Latinos! Aside from all else you are hearing on multiple topics here is one that goes to character and just plain-in-the-open dishonesty. Mitt is poiting to Senator's Kerry's wife as his latest reason for not providing more of his tax returms. Kerry's wife did not run for president and as the Talking Points Memo atricle points out - "as a presidential candidate John Kerry had released 20 years of tax returns."
