A couple more comments about this because it's astonishing. Remember when R's TRASHED Michelle Obama for being an *angry black women*? Well, here is the unhinged looking Angry White Woman who is PO that anyone is questioining their right to keep their taxes a secret, even though THEY want to be all up in everyone else's face about theirs. I liked this. An Open Letter to Ann Romney - Read the whole thing but here's the list of LEGITIMATE reasons why we need to see those returns.

Here is a list of legitimate, real reasons why voters are entitled to access to your tax returns, whether you like it or not:

  • The next President of the United States must lead an effort to reform our current tax code. It’s long overdue and must be done. We’re entitled to understand how you approach your own taxation, and what interests your husband will serve if he were leading that effort. Simply put: Will a Romney Administration consider the needs of the working poor over the needs of corporations and the wealthy?
  • Ordinary people don’t have offshore tax shelters. Why do you? Why do you consider it American to shelter income from taxes offshore? Why would your investments take precedence over patriotism?
  • Americans deserve to fully understand how Bain benefited your family. It’s well established at this point that Bain Capital was in the business of mergers and acquisitions. People lost many jobs to offshoring, mergers, and just plain asset-stripping. It’s fair for them to understand what kind of profit you took from those lost jobs, particularly when you claim you know how to create them.
  • Ordinary people endure far more invasive inquiries for minimum wage jobs. You can get all high and mighty with us, but to get an $8.50 per hour job, many ordinary people have to endure (and authorize) a credit check, and in the case of government jobs, a background check. In many cases, they have to submit to a drug test, too. That drug test requirement isn’t because their potential employer believes every applicant is a drug addict. It’s because they want to make sure this applicant isn’t one.

    Similarly, we’re entitled to know whether any possible future President is a tax dodger. From the one single return released, it certainly appears that there are some dodgy tax items that deserve closer scrutiny. The problem is, we don’t have enough information to say one way or the other, and you think we shouldn’t see it.

And what she says about blind trusts. In that video you have from Jon Stewart, it shows Romney SAYING that blind trust are an age-old ruse ! Romney is not incompliance with the type of arms-length blind trust you're suppose to have in political office. CNN

A not-so-blind trust

When asked about his finances, Romney often claims a certain level of ignorance about his holdings, saying that since 2003, his assets have been held in a "blind trust."

Public officials often place their assets in a trust in order to avoid conflicts of interest. And indeed, Romney created his blind trust before becoming the governor of Massachusetts.

But now, for a few different reasons, the trust is hardly blind.

For example, the trustee who manages the portfolio, Bradford Malt, is a friend of the candidate. A close personal relationship with the trustee, according to federal ethics rules, is most definitely out-of-bounds.

And the contents of the blind trust have been released via federal disclosure forms, which have been the subject of extensive media reports.

Romney has already pledged to dissolve his current blind trust if elected president. He will create a new one that complies with Office of Government Ethics rules, his campaign has said.

This also from Vanity Fair re: those offshore trust accounts in Ann Romney's name.
