Don’t worry, nobody does.
LAS VEGAS — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid wants no sympathy for the heat he’s taking over his unproven accusation about Mitt Romney’s taxes.
“No one should feel sorry for me,” Reid said in Las Vegas on Monday afternoon during a preview of a clean energy summit he’s hosting there Tuesday, even as his incendiary remarks about Romney have turned the GOP magnifying glass onto himself.
“The issue that I raised has nothing to do with me,” Reid told reporters. “It has everything to do with the first presidential candidate in more than 30 years who refuses to show the American people his income tax returns.”
Reid wouldn’t provide any further details on the source of his claim that Romney didn’t pay taxes for a decade, or say whether his source will go public.
“I made my statement. The burden is not on me. It’s on Romney to produce his income tax returns,” Reid told reporters, adding: “This man is running for president. We should know more about him.”
