A reader emailed me a little while ago, asking me if I’d heard the rumor that Harry Reid’s source for his statement that Mitt Romney paid no taxes for ten years is none other than Jon Huntsman. Yeah, that Huntsman. The same Jon Huntsman who called Romney “dishonest” during the Republican primary campaign, and whose endorsement of Mitt Romney, fellow Republican and fellow Mormon, was less than enthusiastic. It makes you wonder….
Well, in any case, I had not heard it, but it makes sense. And here’s a little tidbit that could give one even more pause.
Romney really needs to cough up those tax returns, and may the Sky Fairy rain blessings on Harry Reid for taking pointe on this issue, and keeping on it even as Republicans & a few misguided Democrats rain hellfire on him.
UPDATE: On Twitter, @Fried_Kimchi pointed out that neither John McCain (who has seen Romney's past tax returns), nor Jon Huntsman, is calling Harry Reid a 'liar', nor telling him to stop making the claim that Romney paid zero taxes for 10 years.
