GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney still refuses to release any of his tax returns from before the year 2010. Romney says there's absolutely nothing worth seeing. So naturally, people are just dying to know what tantalizing pieces of information the returns hold.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) claimed last week in an interview with The Huffington Post that he had been told Romney paid no taxes for 10 years. Romney denied Reid's claim and challenged the Senate leader to "put up or shut up." Reid, in response, called his source "extremely credible" and told Romney that the one way to clear this thing up once and for all would be to simply release the returns.
Of course, Romney's stubbornness on the matter, paired with the likelihood that a man worth upwards of $250 million undoubtedly has a lot of interesting tax information, has only helped fuel speculation about why he is cowering from disclosure. It's also made us realize that we know a lot more about Earth's mysteries -- as well as some completely weird and random things -- than we do about the tax history of a man who wants to be president.
