Lawrence O’Donnell Asks Tax Attorney If Romney May Be Hiding A Felony In His Tax Returns

On MSNBC tonight, Lawrence O’Donnell raised a rather provocative question on his show tonight: did Mitt Romney participate in an IRS amnesty program in 2009, and was his refusal to report it a felony? He brought this up in the context of the renewed scrutiny of Romney’s tax returns after the recent allegations made against him by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

After reading a statement by Reid regarding his initial comments and Romney’s response, O’Donnell brought up an IRS amnesty program regarding foreign bank accounts, and asked if Romney was involved in the program and didn’t report it, if it means he has committed a felony. Tax attorney Jeremy Temkin said it would have to be demonstrated that it was not done “willfully,” and the government would have to prove that one knew they had “an obligation to report” in that instance.

Total proof that Romney is hiding a felony in his tax return:

Romney's friend and associate Michael Herzog and Herr Birch, were arrested for fraud and various counts of conspiracy to evade taxes.



It seems that for Romney stealing what's not yours is the second commandment. Perhaps Romney is really a corrupt Democrat in sheep's clothing, as the evidence seems to suggest here?

Come to think of it, what about an arrest warrant?

He seems

like a democrat to me too. There is nothing conservative about him.
He needs to show his birth certificate and his tax returns. All candidates in past elections had too.

Keepin' it real.
