Here's just a quick video update of how the media are starting to pick up and run with Mitt Romney's evasion of this tax-return issue:
Mitt has come continued to dodge the question in a radio interview in Iowa today, saying there's nothing hidden in his tax returns that we need to worry our little heads about and besides, "I don't manage them. I don't even know where they are." In other words, the buck stops with the hired help. If anything untoward or illegal is found in the pages of documents when (or if) they're released, he's already planning to blame an underling. Klassy. With a Kapital "K".
Thanks to everyone who's been tweeting with the hashtag #MittsMissingReturns on Twitter. Please keep it up until Mitt comes clean (or cleanish).
UPDATE (11:43 am, 7/10/12):
Here's another must-see video of Ryan Lizza on CNN standing up to a stonewalling Romney surrogate, Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah):
RYAN LIZZA: Just yes or no, should he release them or not.
JASON CHAFFETZ: No! No, I don’t…He’s been very successful, he’s released everything that he’s required to release, including paying more than 16 percent of his income to charitable givings. I think it’s a diversionary tactic. Most people, they don’t care about this. Governor Romney’s been very successful, get over it. It’s a reality.
