Republicans on Sunday attacked Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for purporting that Mitt Romney has not paid taxes in 10 years, with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus calling the Nevada Democrat a “dirty liar.”
Reid said his information came from an investor in Bain Capital, the company Romney started, and made the accusation Thursday from the Senate floor. He has yet to offer evidence to support the claim and even has said he’s not sure it’s true. Reid made the claim to a reporter earlier in the week.
“I’m not going to respond to a dirty liar who hasn’t filed a single page of tax returns himself,” Priebus said on ABC’s “This Week” about Reid’s claim. “He complains about people with money, but lives in the Ritz Carlton here down the street.”
