Romney's gone on record claiming to only be worth 100 million, but his IRA alone is worth that much. So it doesn't take a genius to see he is worth
a lot more than that. As the announcer in the video says, his interest payments on his investments indicate he is more likely to be a
, but knows how sensitive people will be about his extreme wealth when the rest of the country is sliding into poverty.
Another reason Romney won't release his taxes came from his claim back when he ran for governor of Massachusetts in 2002 that he was a resident of
MA. - when in fact he was still listing his residency as Utah. MA.'s state constitution requires a person be a resident of that state for 7 years
before being eligible to run for office. Romney refused to release his returns then because he would have been ineligible to run for governor.
the 2002 gubernatorial campaign, it was alleged that Romney had gamed his taxes to qualify to run for governor. The Massachusetts Democratic Party
said that Romney had lied about filing jointly as a resident of Massachusetts and Utah, a charge that the Romney campaign denied and denied and denied
until the very last minute when they were forced to admit that yes, the charge had merit and that Romney had filed retroactively.
Yet in that 2002 election he demanded his opponent Shannon O'Brien's husband
release his return. O'Brien had released several years of her
return, but that wasn't good enough, Romney demanded the return from her husband too. Go figure.
Republicans demand Obama release his grades from college, for whatever bizarre reason (do we have to know what grade someone got in Chemistry 101?),
yet the Republicans refuse to look at their own candidate.
