5. The Person Who KNOWS for sure if Romney Paid Zero taxes for 10 yrs...
Republican Senator JOHN MCCAIN KNOWS .....
When McCain was vetting potential VP running mates in 2008, it was reported that the people who were involved in the process reported that ROMNEY turned over tax returns that go back further than 10 years. McCain would have had access to Romney's tax returns in weighing his VP choice.
Given John McCain's penchant for having his aids read and review everything on a wide array of topics and then give him a short oral summary, it is highly likely that additional McCain campaign staff saw the ROMNEY tax returns and/or heard the oral summary that would definitely pointed out this fact, if true.
I would expect that if John McCain were questioned about his knowledge of Romney's tax returns in the vetting process that he would take the no comment route instead of backing up Romney's claims.
** What would be ironic would be Sarah Palin having access to Mitt's tax returns as the McCain VP choice. Just imagine Mitt telling Palin she will not have a speaking role at the Repub Convention, and what she might do in response.
