Romney Non-Disclosure? Ho-Hum.

The L.A. Times reports here that Mitt Romney did not "explicitly disclose" certain foreign and offshore bank accounts on his required federal campaign disclosure forms. These same accounts were reported, however, to the IRS. Doesn't look like there's much to the story. There are different reporting requirements on campaign forms and IRS returns and some of the items revealed to the IRS were apparently listed at a higher level of generality on the campaign forms. Even assuming that there was some misreporting, one would be hard pressed to call it anything other than inadvertent.

Everything Romney did with his 'Tahiti Account' was perfectly legal and within his rights, he did just as any one of us would do. Don't hate the player, hate the game. This is just another non-story being dragged up by his competitors and the democrats in an effort to slow his momentum, but let's be honest with each other there is no one else more suitable to run the country right now besides him. We saw what happened when we vote on anything besides fiscal issues when fiscal issues are the most important matter on the docket.
