New Hampshire Newspaper Calls On Romney To Release Tax Returns

CREDIT:

New Hampshire’s major newspaper, the Union Leader, released an editorial on Thursday calling on Mitt Romney to release his tax returns. “[T]here is no place for secrecy or, indeed, privacy in a Presidential campaign,” the editorial stated. “If you want the job, you have to subject yourself to the scrutiny.” The presidential candidate has been extremely secretive about his tax returns, refusing to release more than two years, and not even fully releasing documents from those years. Romney has not heeded the call of many Republicans who want him to release his returns, so it is unlikely that the Union Leader’s editorial will change his position, despite the fact that the paper is in a swing state.
