Candidates and Tax Returns
The Santa Rosa Press- Democrat's editorial today supports recent efforts by Congressman Jared Huffman and on the state level by assemblydude Mike McGuire to require candidates to disclose their tax returns as a requirement of running for office. It should be no surprise the Press- Democrat would get behind it, believing we can clean up politics through legislation. I disagree.
I suggest leaving it as it is. If voters care about such things, they can vote for the candidate that releases his or her returns, and not vote for the one that doesn't. Simple enough and everyone is left to their choice.
