Letterman Suggests Romney Didn't Pay Taxes, Calls Him A "Felon"
October 07, 2012
Late night TV host David Letterman has suggested that Mitt Romney is a felon because he does not pay income tax, despite the Republican presidential nominee recently releasing IRS documents showing he paid nearly $2 million just in 2011.
Letterman, host of CBS Late Show, made the statement Friday night when telling the audience about a recent poll on what Americans would most like to see, reported first by the website NewsBusters.
Letterman said that 6 percent of Americans wanted to see Romneys tax returns.
"Yeah, we want to get a look at those tax returns because I believe we will discover that the man has not paid a nickel in United States federal income tax," Letterman said. "Thats right, we have a felon running for president."

Dave, go back to schlepping with your staffers in your studio bedroom.
Saw it. I wanted to see Billy Crystal.
Letterman said it.
It was outrageous by any standards.
I can agree to that much, but it's not Mitt.
He probably has a cozy little one bedroom in the West 60's that his wife in New Canaan doesn't even know about.Of course it's completely legit.he only uses it to conduct "interviews".
You mean the guy who can't say the word "republican" because it makes him gag?
And this moron is complaining publicly that Romney refuses to appear on his program?
He was more likable when he was screwing his staff members.
Yes, now that you mention it, we DO have a felon running for President.
I know. One is worse than the other. I can watch him for the laughs and leave the rest out, unlike my liberal counterparts who are very closed.
I remember just after 9/11, Crystal showed up on Letterman and was trying to tell the story of how great it was to have “W” arrive in the celeb box at Yankee Stadium, the day “W” threw out the first pitch. Crystal was like a kid and wanted to share the excitement - he is a great baseball fan and is featured in Ken Burns’ documentary. He was about to give his impression of and a great story about “W”.
Anyway, Letterman shut him up with such hatred of Bush so fast it was horrible to watch.
I’ve seen Letterman maybe three times since he had Hillary on in 2000 and then he turned to the dark side the day after (well a week after- he went in for emergency coronary bypass surgery that day).
They got to Crystal, who still has funny moments.
He didn’t say anything hateful about Mitt nor republicans the other night. He made fun of Mitt and he cracked us up.
We’re laughing all the way to the Polls on Nov 6 (from my lips to God’s ears).
Letterman was an ignorant fool the last time I watched him...several years ago!
Letterman was an ignorant fool the last time I watched him...several years ago!
I can remember when Letterman used to be funny and enjoyable to watch......my stepfather was still alive. I think my stepfather passed in 85.
So this marginally talented a**h**e thinks he has the right to use American airwaves to push his own personal agenda and biases? Who died and left him king? Ironic that this elitist piece of garbage is accusing someone else of being elitist. The NYC cocktail party liberal elite think they have the right to dictate how the rest of us in America live. How disgusting. Based on what? Stupid Dog Tricks? A tired old contrived ‘Top Ten List’? These are the things that make this guys opinions important? Pathetic.
Dude, those talking points are like 2-3 weeks out of date
I think you mean schtumping your staffers.
I don’t think *that* is what he was doing in his studio bedroom. LOL
David Letterman is a product from the 1980’s that is way past his shelf life. Honestly, why are there even posts about this jackass on FR? Is he relevant to anyone? The guy hasn’t been funny in a long time. Now he is just another bitter, rich Hollywood leftist ranting about things he doesn’t understand. His greatest contribution to the world was dropping watermelons off of buildings in the 1980’s. Ignore the a-hole.
It’s not schlepping or schtumping - it’s schtupping. What kind of yid are you? LOL
who is David Letterman? I never heard of him. is he on MSNBC?
When I heard about this I got pissed at Letterman. Then I watched a video clip of him saying it, and it seemed to me he was making fun of 6% of people from some survey who thought it a top issue for Mitt to release his tax records.
BO in his book and elsewhere has admitted to using illegal drugs. Therefore he should be a felon. Not a convicted felon but a felon nonetheless.
Dollars to donuts Letterman is a felon. So there are felons using their influence on late night TV.
Go back to mom Dave and get out of NASCAR too!
Dave isn’t the only one. I regularly see liberal whackjobs posting on facebook that Romney hasn’t paid taxes and/or refuses to release his tax returns.
Apparently not a very good one and I stand corrected.
David Letterman hosts a late night show that has been running for many years...I am not sure if you are kidding or not about not knowing who he is...but just in case you weren’t kidding, I thought somebody ought tell you.
I've gotta give Dave credit for taste if not decency.A few years ago,when I'd watch him occasionally,he had an incredibly gorgeous "assistant",about one third his age,who would walk down the aisle with the prize that a member of the audience had just won.She was one of the ones that he was schtumping.
Whatever David Letterman is doing, it’s not been helping his ratings.
Here’s a quote from a TV-ratings site: ‘’UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. October 4, 2012 NBCs late-night stars have opened the 2012-13 television season with #1 finishes for the week of September 24-28 versus the ABC and CBS time-period competition, as “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” delivered bigger audiences in adults 18-49 and total viewers than CBS’s “Late Show with David Letterman” ...
Maybe one of the reasons Jay Leno’s ratings are #1 is that he’s been making jokes about Obama rather than lying and propagandizing for him like David Letterman.
Why would anyone in their right mind even watch Letterman?
He is a buffoon.
THe context for me and many, I omagine, is Letterman’s hatred for all people and things conservative. It’s palpable.
I may be wrong, but I THINK the word you meant is "Schtooping", and you could lose the "with".
"Dave, go back to schtooping your staffers in your studio bedroom."
Schlepping means, if I remember my Yiddish, "To move or cause to be pushed around". For instance "We had to schlep about 25 tons of amplifiers after that gig last night. What a pain in the @ss".
I was merely trying to get a point across seems most people got it even if my Yiddish was off LOL.
“Honestly, why are there even posts about this jackass on FR? Is he relevant to anyone? The guy hasnt been funny in a long time.”
Your comment kind of answers my response to the part of the article’s title (Why no demand for apology). Letterman simply isn’t relevant to Romney, and to demand an apology would only contribute ratings to Letterman’s lame show.
Yes, Pittsbugh, the humor came across.
Hint, China, check it in the online german dictionary any time there is a question re Yiddish, but I think we got it.
And more than 50 percent want to see Obama's school records, citizenship proof and draft card. You are a useful IDIOT Letterman, a USEFUL idiot.
Letterman should be made to retract that statement on his program. What an idiot that man is.
He’s gotten worse.
Letterman has always been a leech that is only on air because
of his guests!
He himself is a no talent nobody! Without writers and talent that comes on his show no one would watch.
been @ least 5 years for me! And will will never tune in again!
Mitt should sue the POS for libel/slander.
Since you’re from Canada and probably never lived in NYC or Lawn Guyland it’s okay!
I (had) always been a fan of Crystal - some of his movies are comedic genius IMHO. And I really generally don’t care about an entertainer’s politics.
In some cases though they go over the line. It’s one thing to express support for a candidate or ideology; it’s quite another to express hatred or scorn for those who do not agree - especially when your livelihood depends upon the very folks for whom you hold such contempt.
Crystal’s comments in ‘04 were so vile I haven’t been able to forget them. And I don’t think he would say anyhing differently today.
Lying sack of unfunny gap-toothed crap.
Asking for an apology from a FOOL only makes you a bigger fool than he is.
Letterman is a dolt and adulterer. Expecting anything from him but trash and lies makes you dummer than he is.
and Dave’s an asshole, no apology coming
That ‘gag’ is acting. I’m guessing the Dave has his gag reflex pretty well under control...
There’s nothing sadder than a comedian who’s outlived whatever sound mind he ever had.
you mean the guy that is opposite of Jay Leno? if that is the guy you were talking about he is not even close to funny.
Wonder what percent want to see Obooby’s birth certificate and college transcripts......Dave is such a tool anymore, don’t know why anyone would watch him. He was actually funny back in the day.
I missed what you are talking about. It’s too bad they have to go to that place. My thinking is that they are fighting for their and their friends’ behaviors to be culturally and legally acceptable. Abortion seems to be at the center. They’re so misguided. They should all have to witness an abortion to some degree hust a photo if they want to champion it so much.
