Let’s get you up to speed on this idiotic flap: As you’re already aware, Mitt Romney has declined to publicly release more than two years of tax returns. He’s not legally obligated to do so; nor are Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid, neither of whom have chosen to live up to the levels of “transparency” they’re demanding of Romney. Frustrated by the Republican presidential candidate’s refusal — and clearly unperturbed by his own hypocrisy — Reid began circulating a totally unsubstantiated rumor this week, suggesting that Mitt Romney is a tax evader.
