Harry Reid not releasing his own tax returns
Politico ^ | 08/07/2012 | By DARREN GOODE and JONATHAN ALLEN

Posted on 08/07/2012 9:49:52 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

LAS VEGAS — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid again deflected questions Monday about releasing his tax returns, even as he continued to pound the demand for Mitt Romney to make more of his own public.

Instead, Reid pointed to the financial disclosure forms he files as a member of Congress, which provide different information.

“I’m a member of Congress now, I don’t make too much money,” said Reid, whose net worth was estimated at $10 million in 2010. “But it’s all listed every year.”

Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson told POLITICO last week that the majority leader will not release his tax returns, writing: “He’s not running for president. … He has of course released more than 30 years of detailed [personal finance disclosures]. There is exponentially more information available to the public about Sen. Reid’s financial life than there is about Mitt Romney’s.”

Conservatives have begun accusing Reid of hypocrisy for his attacks on Romney. And the Las Vegas Review-Journal — in a somewhat different context — on Monday resurrected a 1974 statement in which Reid said: “Any man or woman who will not be completely candid about his or her finances does not deserve to be in public office.”

Personally, I like the fact that Mitt is ignoring Harry and keeping hte focus on the economy. He knows that no matter what he releases the media will use highlight a different line everyday to keep the focus off of Obama.

Yes, but the media conveniently bury that information. The little sleaze is up to his eyeballs in real estate racketeering.

A well-placed source who I won’t name told me that Reid claimed deductions for kiddie-porn website subscriptions for the past 10 years.

I think Harry needs to release those returns to prove it’s not true.

Worse yet since there are so many credible sources with knowledge of Harry Reid’s pedophilia what exactly are in those returns? I’ve heard he used campaign cash to hush up the little boys he molested families. These are very serious allegations and Harry Reid needs to prove his in innocence.

Also what did the obama administration know about Harry’s little boy problem and when did they know it. After all according to the new rules it’s not the validity of the accusations that matter it’s their seriousness .....and these are very serious allegations.

The Senate Majority Leader has mob ties. We’ve sure come a long way, baby, since that young upstart Bobby Kennedy was Attorney General.

Reid thinks $10MM net work is "not making too much money". No wonder these knuckleheads think we can pay more taxes.

RNC, are you paying attention? Dingy Harry is writing your ads here...

We have to remind ourselves that we are dealing with “mafia tactics” and corruption.....anyone with any sense can read between the lines that Harry Reid is corrupt....it woont be hard for him to prove otherwise. White house and the occupants are very corrupt.....

Is Harry Reid still around? I would have thought that the reports about his orgies at Jerry Sandusky’s house would have driven him underground by now.

Now, I’m not sure if those rumors are true, but if they aren’t, Reid needs to provide evidence that he’s not keeping a cage full of underage illegal boys in his basement for sex and cannibalism purposes.

Because HE DOES. Or that’s what I heard anyway.

I couldn’t care less about Reed’s (sic) tax returns. I DEMAND Reed (sic) release ALL his phone records to prove, now that the word is out, that he is not a child molester.

Given that Reid is turning into a bit of a joke in Congress over these totally ridiculous allegations, it’s good reason why Romney is ignoring Reid’s recent rants.

I think precisely because Romney has refused to bend is why Reid is having hard time. The Dems are used to everyone bending to their demands. This is new.

But in 2 years of released returns, Romney’s returns show he paid more in taxes than General Electric did as an entire corporation.

8.2 million paid in just federal taxes the past 2 years by Romney-42% of his income in 2011 went to taxes and charities...let’s see Hairy Reed’s .

On an Unrelated note, What is up with Mitt Romneys hair? Why are is side burns white but the rest of his hair is dark? I have never seen anything like that ever on anybosy else. Maybe he doesn't want to reveal his tax returns because they should he has been claiming back money on his Just for Men Hair Dye expenses. At least Obama is going grey gracefully

BTW, I think that Romney should SEAL his Federal and State Tax Records when he announces who his Veep will be.

He's been a public servant from day one, never more than a city attorney for a couple of years before his political career and he's worth 10 million?

I'd love to see his last 20 years of tax returns!

In the primary, Romney released financial disclosure statements (”showing a lot of leg”) and, later, tax return(s) required by law.

Who cares about Reid’s taxes? Has he been able to prove he isn’t a pedophile? Release any documents on that?

BULLSHIRT noobie Obamapimp troll!

Obama has been darkening and lightening his hair to fit the occasion just like Slick Willie Clinton did for years -

Obama is also using cosmetic gel and Super-Glue to hold down his combed-forward and thinning hair over his receding hairline on his forehead.

Anyone with a lick of sense and sanity can plainly see that if they enlarge and zoom in on Obama's head

Vanity post:
When and why was reid blessed with a shiner?

That tie is so big, it makes reid look small.
I’ve never seen a man wear a tie to match a shiner.
Heck, his clothes look three sizes too big on him.
A coat hanger has more body.

With the economy in trouble, unemployment at8.3 percent,this is what bothers you? Romney's hair color?

Maybe his hair is turning grey because he understands, (unlike Obama) what a mess Obama has made in the last 3 1/2 years.

Yup. It’s amazing how he became a multi-millionaire on a congressional salary.

This story seems to have gone viral.

Here' s a link to a video one of Harry's victims speaking out (scroll down to video)....

Yikes! I don't know whether to believe this stuff or not, but HE'S NEVER DENIED IT!
