In a move to try to pacify the growing pressure to release his tax returns, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has given interviews with sympathetic agencies, some with ties to his former business Bain Capital. He tries to point to his 2010 IRS filing to show transparency, but when reviewed it is clear that key portions detailing out his holdings overseas were absent. Then he tried redirection, claiming incorrectly that the wife of former candidate John Kerry had failed to turn over her tax returns. In his interview with the National Review, Romney admits that the use of off shore accounts is in order for investors to “not be subject to taxes” and that the money can then be “brought back into the United States.”
In another time, this might be considered Money Laundering.
