Skip to comments.Harry Reid not releasing his own tax returns

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.
Im a member of Congress now, I dont make too much money, said Reid, whose net worth was estimated at $10 million in 2010. But its all listed every year.
Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson told POLITICO last week that the majority leader will not release his tax returns, writing: Hes 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. Reids financial life than there is about Mitt Romneys.
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.

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 .
BTW, I think that Romney should SEAL his Federal and State Tax Records when he announces who his Veep will be.
I'd love to see his last 20 years of tax returns!

Dang! I meant to put “public servant” in quotes.
In the primary, Romney released financial disclosure statements (”showing a lot of leg”) and, later, tax return(s) required by law.
Reid should release his Senate budgets.
Who cares about Reid’s taxes? Has he been able to prove he isn’t a pedophile? Release any documents on that?
Since Aug 6, 2012 (signed up on FR yesterday!)
"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(sic) 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"
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
It is all the Major's fault You sent her out to find my Tax returns!
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.
At least Obama is going grey gracefully
Yeah the same way he throws a baseball, rides a bike, etc.
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.
To paraphrase Harry, I can’t understand how anyone who works could ever be a Democrat.
Im a member of Congress now, I dont make too much money, said Reid, whose net worth was estimated at $10 million in 2010.
Yup. It’s amazing how he became a multi-millionaire on a congressional salary.
