During the 2012 election, Reid claimed an investor at Bain Capitol had told him Romney "didn't pay any taxes for 10 years."
"He didn't pay taxes for 10 years! Now, do I know that that's true? Well, I'm not certain," Reid said in an interview with The Huffington Post. "But obviously he can't release those tax returns. How would it look?
While Romney dismissed the allegation, Reid pressed the issue throughout the last months of the campaign.
"Game Change" authors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann later claimed longtime Romney backer Jon Huntsman Sr. was Reid's source. Huntsman, however, denied the report.
