Sen. Harry Reid has done what nobody else in the country has been able to do! He's cracked the case on the Mystery of Mitt Romney's Undisclosed Tax Returns! And all it took was a little help from a magical invisible friend…
A month or so ago, [Herry Reid] said, a person who had invested with Bain Capital called his office.
"Harry, he didn't pay any taxes for 10 years," Reid recounted the person as saying. "He didn't pay taxes for 10 years! Now, do I know that that's true? Well, I'm not certain," said Reid. "But obviously he can't release those tax returns. How would it look?
"You guys have said his wealth is $250 million," Reid went on. "Not a chance in the world. It's a lot more than that. I mean, you do pretty well if you don't pay taxes for 10 years when you're making millions and millions of dollars."
Yes, this is certainly a believable story. "Hello? Hi, I'm some anonymous guy from Bain Capital, and I have a piece of bombshell information for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Speaking. Don't use my name for this, but I happen to know that Mitt Romney went an entire decade without paying taxes. You don't say! Scout's honor. Well, thanks for the tip, none-make-believe person."
You know, I wouldn't be surprised to learn that this is the same guy who was sending Donald Trump all that unbelievable information about the President's birth certificate from Hawaii.
Obviously, a story this flimsy is pretty much the easiest thing in the world for Mitt Romney to smack down. All he has to do is… Oh, right. Oh, I see the problem.
