McCain's Tax Returns
Or rather Cindy McCain's tax returns. Well, she hasn't disclosed them. Her tax records should be disclosed. I think the public has the right to know such financial information and if there are any potential conflicts of interest. Just as I think Bill Clinton should be releasing donor information with regards to the Clinton library and the Clinton Global Initiative. However, what makes the failure to disclose all the more galling in McCain's case is that he has over the years assumed the mantle of the reformer. He championed that goddawful legislation McCain-Feingold (BCRA) and mentions the elimination of earmarks as his proposed solution to every governance issue.
