Pop quiz: Who was the first presidential candidate to disclose their tax records?
I'll give you a hint, odds are you're familiar with his son.
It was George Romney, Mitt Romney's father.
George Romney released 12 years worth of tax returns to the American people when he ran for president. Since then, presidential candidates -- Republicans and Democrats -- have followed his lead and released multiple tax records for public scrutiny.
All presidential candidates, except one.
Mitt Romney has only released one year of records after persistent pressure. It raises the question: What does Mitt Romney have to hide?
Romney has some explaining to do:
Romney admits he has huge amounts of money in offshore bank accounts -- but won't say how much money, how many accounts, or where they all are
Vanity Fair reports that Romney set up shell companies in Bermuda and tax shields in the Cayman Islands and Swiss Bank accounts
And just this week, Romney's campaign said it was "unseemly and disgusting" for people to scrutinize his tax returns and business holdings
Unseemly? Disgusting? It's the same thing every presidential candidate has done since 1968. Everyone except Mitt Romney. So, we have to ask: What's he hiding?
