House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) decries Mitt Romney’s unwillingness to fully disclose his tax returns and other financial records. Pelosi says that if Romney were to be vetted for an administration job he would be required to make his finances public. Speaking at a press conference Thursday, Pelosi argued that Romney has not been subject to the same type of financial scrutiny that he would be subjected to in order to be appointed to a lower government position.
“It is important to note that Governor Romney could not be considered to be a member of the cabinet because it required that disclosure be made of tax returns and the rest,” noted Pelosi. Continuing she explained “so, he’s running for president wanting to win and appoint a cabinet which would have more disclosure than he has as president. Well, that’s not gonna happen, but nonetheless you see he could not even become a cabinet member for that lack of disclosure. And now, with that lack of disclosure he wants to be president of the United States.”
