GordonLee90232 saidI am not sure I understand this did Mr. Romney evade paying his taxes or did he file his tax return following the law and after adding everything up the total taxes that he owed to the federal government was zero?
This scandal is about whether or not Romney is lying.
A Bain source leaked word that there were ten years that Romney paid no taxes at all.
Now Romney has denied it - stating flat out that it's "totally and completely wrong" that he paid no taxes for ten years.
Romney has crawled way out on a limb.
Every journalist in the country is going to try to be the one to get the name of the Bain source who has knowledge of Romney's tax records.
There are only a very limited number of people at Bain who would have that knowledge.
Many members of the press are hungry to be the one to break this story.
There will be further developments.
And of course if Romney is revealed as a liar that would be devastating.
Romney can easily prove that he's telling the truth by releasing his tax records.
Every day that he fails to do that confirms that he's hiding something extremely damaging.
