Mitt Romney and his tax returns: Deja vu?

Don’t worry, everything is hunky-dory with his taxes, says Mitt Romney, who has brushed off requests to release any returns prior to 2010, despite the questions Vanity Fair and other media outlets have raised about his various investments.

I’m of mixed mind on this. On the one hand, I very much doubt this election will turn on anything we’ll learn if Romney releases more tax returns. That said, my view is that candidates for prominent offices should routinely release, say, five years of tax returns to give voters a thorough look at their finances. And you can learn some interesting things from tax returns. Like, say, that the Clintons claimed a deduction for donating Bill’s old underwear. (Yikes!)
