Response to Her Sister (Original post)

25. I think that neither Bernie nor Jane has any intention of releasing any tax returns.

They have too much to hide about their assets (multiple properties and possible rental income), lack of charitable donations (Sanders doesn't believe in charity), indirect investments in fracking and other oil and gas interests (mutual funds, etc.), $200k golden parachute paid to Jane for running Burlington College into bankruptcy, Sanders campaign money paid to Jane (for her services), toxic waste committee money paid to Jane, and god knows what else.

I suppose that Jane has every reason to avoid public scrutiny at this time. But, since they filed jointly and Bernie signed the 1040, it is his responsibility to release the tax forms as well. Passing the buck and the blame to Jane lessens Bernie's credibility. How can he talk about breaking up banks, when he can't even understand or manage his own personal financial accounts? Potential voters have a right to know this stuff.

In the end, he and Jane will be saved by the bell. Hillary's winning the primary will turn out to be a blessing, because there will no longer be any need for him to release anything, until his Vermont Democratic rival in 2018 makes the same demand once again.
