Warren on Tax Returns: Top Stories in Central Mass in 2012
Monday, December 31, 2012
Before she became Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren and was still Democratic hopeful Elizabeth Warren, the Harvard Law professor made waves when she sided with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in demanding that Republican presidential nominee and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney release his tax returns for every year that he was in public service.
At the opening of her campaign office in Worcester, Warren went on to call for her opponent, Republican Senator Scott Brown, to release tax returns for all the years that he had been in public service
, which would be two decades worth of tax filings.
GoLocalWorcester's story was picked up nationally, and Warren, who had only released four years of tax returns compared to Brown's six years, quickly backpedaled on her statements, saying she misspoke and that her opponent had released enough years of filings.
