Response to maddezmom (Original post)

Fri Aug 17, 2012, 08:32 AM

13. Lawrence O'Donnell said last night that the Obama campaign is wondering

 

about why Romney's partial (he failed to provide tax forms for the overseas bank accounts) tax return for 2010 show a $100 mil trust fund in 9 overseas holdings and 12 partnerships including the Swiss bank account that is not revealed on any of Romney's financial disclosures for Governor (2000-2006 or so) nor his two financial disclosures as a candidate for President (2007, 2011).

There was already a problem explaining how Romney accrued 10,000 years worth of the max IRA contribution in that $100 mil trust fund.

Now, there's a second problem for Romney to explain why it was never disclosed previously. Did he win a $100 mil lottery? Did he have to get amnesty because the IRS was allowed by the courts to subpoena Swiss banks in 2008 and he felt the heat?

Romney has a real financial disclosure problem because what he's disclosed previously doesn't add up to what he disclosed on his 2010 tax return and it doesn't look like it's going away any time soon.

My only concern is that it leads to a brokered convention to replace him. I'd rather the GOP blow more of their Citizens United dough beyond the convention and then force Romney to withdraw closer to the election when there's no time for them to regroup around another candidate.
