Florida Democratic Party Calls on Mitt Romney to Level with Voters and Release All of His Tax Return

Posted

Tallahassee, FL – As new details continue to emerge about questionable steps Mitt Romney has taken over the years to avoid paying his fair share in taxes, Florida Democratic Party Spokeswoman Brannon Jordan released a statement today calling on Romney to come clean with voters by releasing all of his tax returns:

STATEMENT FROM FLORIDA DEMOCRATIC PARTY SPOKESWOMAN BRANNON JORDAN:

“With every passing week, the American people find out more information that raises questions about Mitt Romney and whether he’s taken unusual steps to avoid paying his fair share of taxes.  In January, Romney released only his 2010 tax returns and an estimate of his 2011 taxes – leading to revelations that he paid a lower tax rate last year than many hardworking middle-class families.  We also discovered through these limited returns that Romney has made millions from investments in offshore tax havens, including Bermuda, the Cayman Islands and Luxembourg. Now, we’re learning that Romney is using ethics and financial disclosure loopholes to hide his finances from voters – defying the precedent set by presidential campaigns including the campaigns of Romney's own father, President Bush and President Obama. Voters here in Florida and across the country deserve to know the truth – and if Mitt Romney can’t give it to them, how can they trust him to lead the country?”
