“The candidate should get his wife to reconsider. The last thing the country needs in a new president is more secrecy.”
– from a Washington Post editorial published today about Cindy McCain’s refusal to release her tax returns.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll continue to say that Cindy McCain’s tax returns should be a matter of public record. The McCains have been married for nearly 30 years, and most of their financial gains have been realized under Cindy’s name, including home purchases, private jet travel, etc.
And if McCain values transparency as much as he says he does and claims to want to know where candidates’ money is coming from, it’s clearly contradictory to keep his wife’s financial filings private.
