Romney Changed His Financial Disclosures [View all]

Romney Changed His Financial Disclosures

by addikell

All this tax haven stuff can get complicated. But this is not:

Romney did relent under party pressure and release his 2010 returns. That forced him to amend the personal financial disclosures he had filed earlier in the year because those documents didn’t mention a Swiss bank account or a series of funds that were set up in foreign countries.

The portion above the fold isn't news to many, but it's something that every American should understand.

The simple fact is that Romney was forced to release the 1 tax return he has released by Republican opponents, earlier in the primary.

“If there’s nothing in there, why not release them, and if there is something in them, better to know now,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said in January.

After being pressured to release the tax return, evidently something he hadn't planned to do, Romney had to amend his financial disclosure documents to mention things in those returns that he had purposely left out of disclosure: ie his Swiss bank accounts and other shady tax havens.

He lied about them.

Mitt Romney is the most dishonest man to run for president in decades. And that's saying one hell of a thing.

Your move, MSM.

Telling, here's the title of the article cited in the diary:

"What’s Romney hiding? Obama campaign wants voters to ask, targeting GOP foe’s private finances"

"Obama campaign wants"?

I mean, the nugget is in the article, and it's big news.

Imagine the impact of an MSM headline using the diary title:
