...but Mitt told Brian Williams that he actually paid 40%!

.....(Of course, less than 15% was on taxes...the rest on charitable contributions)

Can't see that being a winning answer with many!

1. If he counts every donation from his charitable trust as a donation to charity,

I think that he gave some money to the Federalist Society and also to the Heritage Foundation. Those are right-wing political organizations in my book.

2. He also counts his church as a charity

And his 10% required tithe to The Mormon Church
