“Delivering the Petitions To Romney’s Boston HQ on Friday”
Burlington, VT – On Monday, July 16th, Democracy for America (DFA), DailyKos and MoveOn.org Political Action unveiled that in 4 days of the “What’s Mitt Hiding?” campaign, the three organizations gathered over 224,000 signatures demanding full disclosure from Republican Presidential candidate Gov. Mitt Romney.
The coalition of progressive organizations will deliver the signed petition to Gov. Romney’s campaign headquarters in Boston, MA on Friday.
“It’s unbelievable in this day and age that a candidate running for the highest office in the land would not opt in for full disclosure of their financial outlook,” said Jim Dean, Chair of DFA. “Gov. Romney should have followed in the footsteps of his father and been a leader in transparency. Instead, he’s opted to hide the truth from the American public. Mitt, what are you hiding?”
“We know Mitt Romney made millions by firing American workers, outsourcing jobs and keeping his money overseas,” said Chris Bowers, Campaign Director at Daily Kos. “His refusal to release his tax returns raises suspicion that her found even more ways to get rich by weakening the American middle class.”
“It’s clear by now that Mitt Romney is hiding something. Whether it’s something embarrassing, like his dancing horse habit, or more nefarious, like dodging taxes the rest of us have to pay, voters have a right to know what Mitt Romney’s been up to,” said Justin Ruben, Executive Director of MoveOn.org Political Action. “It’s long past time for him to release his returns.”
Democracy for America, DailyKos and MoveOn.org Political Action will hold a press conference on Friday to deliver the signed petitions to Gov. Mitt Romney’s Presidential election headquarters. The press conference will urge the Romney campaign to release his tax returns publicly for full transparency proving that Mitt Romney has nothing to hide.
