QUICK CLIP: Matt Bevin Still Refusing To Release Taxes
Posted September 15, 2015
FRANKFORT, KY -- On WFPL News just now, Matt Bevin told a caller that he believes it is not "necessary or appropriate" to release his tax returns, continuing to break Kentucky's long and bipartisan tradition of disclosure by gubernatorial nominees.
Q: Mr. Bevin, in the day of mistrust of politicians, don’t you think it would be the right thing, sir, to show your income taxes to the citizens of Kentucky so we would know what is in your history before we go to the ballot? It seems like Richard Nixon's secret way to end the war in Vietnam, and we know how that ended. But if you have nothing to hide, sir, why won’t you show us?
A: Do I think it’s necessary or appropriate for me to release my taxes? No.
