Senator Reid says he got his information from an “extremely credible source,” someone who had invested with Bain Capital, the firm Romney once ran. But how would such a person – if he or she even exists – know anything about Mitt Romney’s taxes? Journalists might want to ask Senator Reid about that.
As an editorial in the Wall Street Journal put it: “But without any proof, Mr. Reid’s accusations are a smear from the fever swamps that say more about Mr. Reid’s ethics than they do about Mr. Romney’s taxes.”
But then what should we really expect from Harry Reid. After all, here is a career politician who lives in the Ritz Carlton in Washington and has millions hidden in illegal offshore accounts – money he accrued from pimping prostitutes back home in Nevada.
I know this because “the word’s out” about it. Besides, an “extremely credible source” told me.
