Wasserman Schultz rejects comparison to Romney on releasing tax returns [View all]
HOLLYWOOD — While blasting Mitt Romney for not releasing years of income tax returns, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is rejecting an opponent’s call to release her own tax returns.
Wasserman Schultz, a congresswoman from Broward County, has been accused of hypocrisy by many Republicans. But she defended her position before Saturday night’s Florida Democratic Party Jefferson-Jackson fundraising dinner at the Westin Diplomat Hotel.
Republican congressional candidate Karen Harrington has repeatedly challenged Wasserman Schultz to release her tax returns, but Wasserman Schultz said the annual financial disclosure forms she fills out are sufficient.
“I’m fully compliant as a member of Congress in filing the financial disclosure that the law requires. Mitt Romney is running for President,” she said.
