A Lesson in Why Stonewalling American Voters Does Not Work
So it looks like dear old Mittens is intent on NOT releasing any more tax returns. I think at this point, some unsolicited advice is warranted. Give these two guys a call:
The first guy is Blair Hull. He was odds on favorite to win the 2004 Illinois Democratic Senate primary. Months leading up to the primary, Chicago papers fought to have Hull's divorce records unsealed and ultimately succeeded with devastating effect. Blair Hull and his ex-wife allowed the release of their 1998 divorce records revealing that she had alleged he was "a violent man" who caused her to fear for her safety. Hull later finished third with 10 percent of the vote in the primary.
The second guy was the handsome clean-cut Republican nominee for the Illinois Senate race. His surname just happens to be Ryan (remind you of someone ). Yet again, those dastardly divorce records reared their ugly head again. After futile attempts at keeping the records sealed, an Illinois judge ordered the release of the records which revealed some lurid details. His former wife, actress Jeri Ryan accused Jack Ryan of pressuring her to have sex at swinger's clubs in New York, Paris, and New Orleans while other patrons watched. Jeri Ryan described one as "a bizarre club with cages, whips and other apparatus hanging from the ceiling."
Moral of the story? It is a losing battle trying to keep secrets from the American public, especially when the information is pertinent as to why we should entrust Mittens with the most powerful office in the land. Oh by the way, did I mention who Messrs Hull and Ryan were running against? One Barack Obama. So do yourself a favor Romney, release more of your tax records. The sooner the better. The truth will ultimately come out. Have any doubts? Give Hull and Ryan a call
