One "theory" about why Romney won't release his taxes----he was a pirate! Arrrgh.
A potential bombshell struck the presidential campaign on Tuesday when it was revealed that candidate Mitt Romney’s tax returns were discovered hidden in the Cayman Islands.
The documents indicate that Romney not only paid no federal income taxes over the last 20 years, he also acquired his vast wealth in part through piracy in the Caribbean.
Although Romney’s father, George Romney, released 12 years of taxes when he ran for president, the Republican nominee has refused on the grounds that it might cause voters to like him even less.
The documents were discovered last week by a British couple on vacation, but made available to reporters after being authenticated by experts. The couple found the documents inside a chest, buried within a cave on the island of Grand Cayman.
