Obama Campaign Renews Call for Romney Release of Tax Returns

[ABC News]

The Obama campaign is renewing calls on presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to release more of his tax returns, saying a fuller disclosure is the only way to resolve questions about his secretive offshore finances, which Democrats have been scrutinizing for the past week.

“These issues are important because voters can’t make judgments about Mitt Romney’s motivations on critical policy matters if this information is kept hidden,” deputy Obama campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said in a statement today. “If there’s nothing to hide, why not clear it all up and release multiple years of returns like every candidate has done for decades, including Mitt Romney’s own father?”

In January, Romney released copies of his 2010 tax return after immense public pressure from his GOP primary rivals and Democrats. But he stopped short of releasing the 12 years worth of returns that his father did when running for president and as President Obama has done.
