Choice of Edwards as VP Fuels Demand for Kerry's Wife to Release Tax Returns

Wednesday, July 7, 2004

Newmax.com (via TaxGuru) reports that Sen. Kerry's choice of John Edwards for VP has renewed calls for Teresa Heinz Kerry to release her tax returns:

Now that he's been tapped to be Sen. John Kerry's running mate, Sen. John Edwards will almost certainly release tax returns on the millions of dollars he's earned as a trial lawyer. And while there are not expected to be any problems in Edwards' financial portfolio, the disclosure will put new pressure on Teresa Heinz Kerry to release her own returns, which campaign insiders regard as a more closely guarded secret than the nation's nuclear launch codes. But party officials have to worry about the appearance of Kerry's running mate coming clean about his personal financial details while the top of the ticket continues to stonewall on the same questions.
