Pelosi: “It’s a fact” someone told Reid that Romney didn’t pay taxes for ten years

Why won’t Romney just release his tax returns, like every other presidential candidate, including his own father, and be done with it?

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) fired back at Republicans accusing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) of lying about a Bain Capital investor telling him that Mitt Romney hadn’t paid taxes in 10 years. They don’t know what they’re talking about, Pelosi says.

“Harry Reid made a statement that is true. Somebody told him. It is a fact,” Pelosi told The Huffington Post in a Sunday interview. “Whether he did or not can easily be disposed of: Mitt Romney can release his tax returns and show whether he paid taxes.”

He’s treating this as though we’re asking for an anal probe.  Or someone is asking him to disprove that he’s a communist (which his own staff suggested).  In fact, we’re asking Romney to do what every other presidential candidate has done before him, release a slew of tax returns.

Romney clearly has something to hide, and it’s increasingly looking like that something is “nothing” – meaning, it’s true that he didn’t pay taxes for ten years.
