Casino67 Posted September 22, 2012 Share Posted September 22, 2012 The Hill: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (R-Nev.) doubled down on criticism of Mitt Romney's personal finances hours after the presumptive Republican nominee presented evidence that would seemingly undermine Reid's frequent charge that a "source" told him Romney had avoided paying federal income taxes. In a release of documents Friday, the accounting firm responsible for preparing Romney's taxes affirmed that he had never paid less than 13 percent in effective federal income taxes since 1990. The Romney campaign later circulated a news report commenting that "it appears that Harry Reid’s infamous source alleging that Romney paid nothing in taxes for 10 years was wrong.” But Reid seized on a quirk of Romney's 2011 taxes — one of only two years the candidate has fully documented — to argue that Romney could be "manipulating" the data. “The information released today reveals that Mitt Romney manipulated one of the only two years of tax returns he's seen fit to show the American people — and then only to ‘conform’ with his public statements," Reid said. "That raises the question: what else in those returns has Romney manipulated?" Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
