Bernie Sanders Explains Why He Hasn’t Released His Tax Returns: His Wife “Does Them”

Yes, in the world Bernie Sanders lives in, passing the buck on to your wife is an act of honest transparency. It’s bad enough that he expects his wife to handle his tax returns, but it’s even more egregious when one considers Jane Sanders’ history of suspicious financial ventures, with her most notoriously accused of defrauding the state of Vermont by providing them with a litany of donations the college she ran never actually saw.

I guess in Bernie’s view, this sort of background qualifies, not disqualifies you from handling other people’s taxes:

“’There ain’t going to be very much exciting in that,’ he added. ‘I get a salary from the United States Senate, you know, there’s not going to be anything new in it that there hasn’t — people haven’t seen for the last many years, but we will get it out as soon as we can.’

Tapper pressed Sanders, saying, ‘but nobody has seen them at all, I guess is the point, and whether or not there’s anything exciting in them –’

‘No, that is not true. That is not true,’ Sanders interjected. ‘Of course, we have released them in the past. Our financial situation, to the best of my knowledge, has not changed very much, but we will get out all of that information as soon as we can.’”
