Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has been under heavy fire from Camp Obama for only releasing two years of tax returns. In an interview due out this weekend in “Parade”, Romney fights back, claiming that releasing the statements will violate his religious privacy. As a Mormon, Romney is obligated to tithe at least 10% of his income to the church, something Romney considers to be “a very personal thing between ourselves and our commitment to our God and our church.”
Is this a valid reason to withhold information from the public?
