RPV has been hammering hard calling for Terry McAuliffe to release his tax returns. Susan Stimpson, candiddate for Lt.Governor agrees.
Stimpson has released a press release in which she has made her tax returns available and has called on all candidates seeking state-wide office this year to do the same.
“Everyone wants transparency in government. Ken Cuccinelli has led the way in disclosure of his tax records,” Stimpson said in a statement. “By contrast, his opponent Terry McAuliffe refuses to release his taxes.”
Facing pressure from Republicans, he provided that information last month days after Cuccinelli allowed reporters to review hundreds of pages of his tax records covering eight years.
Stimpson is one of seven Republicans pursuing the party nomination for lieutenant governor.
Her campaign manager Tim Edson said Stimpson is leading by example because “she has nothing to hide” just a record of paying taxes “like hardworking middle class Virginians do.”
Candidates who refuse to follow suit and release their tax records evidentally “have something to hide,” concluded Edson.
