Tax-Return Burn

Ann Romney Defends Mitt’s Finances


Ann Romney would like everyone to just back off, please. Her husband is getting hit from both ends of the political spectrum for not releasing more of his tax returns and, frankly, she's sick of it. "There are so many things that will be open again for more attack, and you just give more material for more attack, and that's the answer," she said in an ABC interview airing Thursday. "We've given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation and about how we live our life." She also said that her husband's finances will not be the deciding factor in the election and insisted, "You should really look at where Mitt has led his life, and where he's been financially. He's a very generous person. We give 10 percent of our income to our church every year. Do you think that is the kind of person who is trying to hide things, or do things? No. He is so good about it."
