That’s no guarantee they don’t have them. They might just be lying about where they got them from.

They got them from the Obama campaign and this is the cover story.

Democrats illegally leaked Joe the Plumber’s paperwork. The culture of corruption serves the Party from within the establishment.

Either that or they just have some that are fake, but accurate.

How can they tell? They could copy them and no one would be able to tell it happened. PDF files on a thumb drive are easily concealed. If it happened, it might be an inside job from someone in their company trying to score big $$$........

Obama has a history of supposedly privileged/sealed documents about his opponent becoming public right before an election.

I don't think he knows anything until Valerie Jarrett tells him.

If somebody got Romney’s tax return I bet the source is somebody inside the IRS. That is what happened to Bill Simon when he ran for governor in California in back in 2002 or 2006.

The IRS certainly has them. Who’s their boss and biggest fan? If leaked it would be cool to prove they only could have come from the IRS.

Romney just release them. This is ridiculous. One year and one approx year. What I would like to see is his tax return in 2004 when he wasn't running for President. I knew Romney was a sleaze. Of course we are all stuck with him and will vote for him but nothing he does makes me happy. He is the biggest fraud since Obama.

The Democrats are the party of Big Government. They're heroes to the bureaucrats that work in Washington. They'll do anything they can to help.

Mother Teresa Nanna is back again shilling for the Demoncratic candidate who went to the church of the most Rev Wright G-D America.

Mother TNanna how did you feel when you heard the Democrats were excluding God from their platform? Probably didn’t matter as long as they weren’t going to be nominating a mormon, right TNanna?

“Romney just release them.”

NapsC while you’re at it, why don’t you ask BarackO to release the multitude of sealed records he is hiding in the most transparent administration ever?

Another mormon-fixated Freeper who would prefer the Muslim-hiding-in-plain sight than Romney. Don’t try to hide your true support for BO.

Enjoying the DNC convention that wanted to exclude God from its platform, are we?

God Save America from 4 more years of BO.

You don’t have too. However, I stand by Romney releasing his tax returns. He is the one running for President not me. I guess if he wants my vote, he will.

Really this tax release thing was started by his father. It has been done by every Presidential candidate since. I didn’t think this up out of thin air. His father started the whole thing. If this is going to be the way it is than fine, but then everyone should stop releasing everything.

You have not read every post or else you would know that is not true. I have 30,000 posts by the way so you better get movin.

Sometimes we just have to get the gist of a poster by the comments we read. You are right, I haven't read all your posts and do not intend to spend much of my time doing so. Just as a unconnected metaphor, a proctologist doesn't have to look at 30,000 a$$holes to know one when he sees it.

IF ( a very big IF ) this is true, then PWC is dumber than a box of rocks. I have done tax returns for individuals in the past and when I give them the electronic files, they are encrypted with the highest security currently available. The client receives the file and the decryption key with my recommendation that the disk goes into a safe or safe deposit and the key be kept elsewhere. I keep my copies in a master encryption file (by year) in a safe for the 7 year period and then destroy the media.

If PWC did not encrypt the files of someone who has been running for President for the past 6 years, ... words and thoughts fail. However, proving that it was PWC and not a government leak would be difficult in extreme to prove just from looking at form images.
