In the impact segment tonight senate majority leader Harry Reid has done it again hurling wild accusations about Mitt Romney not paying taxes.
After telling reporters that -- had to pay taxes in ten years.
-- then double down and made the same claim on the senate floor yesterday -- absolutely no substantiation.
If a person coming before this body.
Wanted to be a cabinet officer.
He couldn't be if he had the repeated -- same refusal Mitt Romney -- about tax returns.
The words out that he hasn't paid any taxes for ten years.
But -- prove that he has paid taxes because he hasn't.
We already know from one partial tax return that he gave us he has money hidden in Bermuda the Cayman Islands and a Swiss bank account.
Not making that up that's in the partial year that he gave us.
Governor Romney fired back today.
Harry Reid really has to put up or shut up all right so -- who are your sources.
But let's let's have Perry explained that is I have pay taxes every year and a lot of taxes.
A lot of taxes so Harry is simply wrong and that's why I'm so anxious Brandon Gibson -- -- of the people who have put this forward.
Now even -- things like Jon Stewart are mocking Harry Reid they say he's gone too far.
Joining us now from Washington.
Radio talk show host -- turner and from Los Angeles Fox News contributor Leslie Marshall Judy let me begin with -- -- -- -- talking about this so.
Is this Harry -- political strategy working.
Why I don't think it's -- working quite frankly I think it's disgraceful because he knows it under the United States constitution article one section six clause line.
From the consider being arrested for saying anything that's untrue on the senate floor that's why he chose to say on the senate floor.
And I think this is an abuse of the speech and debate clause and quite frankly a disgrace to the dignity of America that he would do something like this well.
But do you believe the White House is behind -- do you think that the White House or even the Obama campaign let's put it in those terms the Obama campaign David Axelrod the president's huge -- says.
-- agrees with Harry -- -- they behind this is this a part of a large scale Obama conspiracy if you will.
To somehow distracted everybody from what's going -- with the economy everything else.
And talk about taxes and Mitt Romney.
Absolutely -- -- diversion tactic and I have no doubt that that Harry Reid the man they threw out there it to be the fall guy and at the collusion and they yes I do definitely have believed that.
Well the depression but Leslie Leslie when it comes to this I wanna hear what you have to say because as I said Jon Stewart and other it's on the left this thing and you know what he's the senate majority leader you the serious political figure in our country and for him to be making unsubstantiated.
Is that below the belt -- It's below the belt to say there's a rumor going -- around that.
Former governor -- hasn't paid taxes in ten years I think it's wrong to say.
He hasn't paid taxes somebody call my office I didn't substantiate the source but -- former governor Ronnie says.
Put up or shot up but he has to put up our shot up and I think the -- -- -- get him to release those tax returns.
Actually if that's what's being done could be working it worked with the president -- finally he said here's my birth the ticket -- is it ever get everybody shot up.
And I think that's what Mitt Romney -- to do because people on the left and right are saying.
Give us your tax returns and that'll show everybody if in fact senator Harry Reid's allegation -- Actually got an interesting equation -- district so if someone says oh you know what I don't think Obama was born the United States I think Obama the Muslim I think either so do you think that's the same as the senate majority leader Leslie the senate majority leader who can.
And spreading a rumor.
I didn't say it was the same -- that I think it's the strategy perhaps it in my opinion.
A lot of some Democrats perhaps senator green.
To put something outlandish out there are so that we get some truth and we get those tax returns which is -- all Americans seem to want -- both sides of the you know way.
Let me get serious here for a second -- respond to -- on this point do you think that there's any argument substantial argument.
For Mitt Romney to release these tax returns he didn't release any tax returns and 08 he's released this time -- released the twenty.
Ten tax returns and some kind of summary of the 2011.
Is that sufficient do you think voters and Republicans think that he should do more.
I think it's sufficient and I think anything more than that is unsubstantiated.
And it's not required and if we're gonna ask for things that need to be.
You know the -- and that aren't necessarily required -- what had about Obama's college thesis in his.
His intimacy is into its papers and his health records what -- all these things that that Obama isn't releasing to us fast and -- documents let me.
If we're gonna start that -- things -- are required let let's go back to that.
Well I Eli -- it's pretty much a tradition -- an -- Here Leslie is mine percolating in saying all majority Rodney is dead rarely used these.
These tax return to that right -- that would you're gonna say.
No why are you can't print -- -- That that's a part of -- in the greater reliance given no I mean since Spiro Agnew pled no contest.
To tax invasion in 1973 Americans have said we want tax returns by the way John McCain is the only Republican who provided such a low about.
Two years rock Obama.
Twelve years -- Bob Dole 29 years Mitt Romney if I -- present the Unita is how did you -- and say president that both sides.
That former president have actually released their health records but President Obama were not relieve his health records I think that -- both sides but I.
I -- if I want to listen to this.
Bits and sound -- lift that at this closely I want to hear your response.
Perhaps Republicans want to shield him -- billionaires willing to drew denying figures to -- a close presidential election.
This resident of this flood of outside money continues.
The day after the election seventeen angry old white man -- wake up.
Realize they just.
Thought the country.
You mean angry all white -- is that what this is about Leslie.
I think -- -- -- of the Latin.
I think Harry Reid is the line his bringing down America quite frankly because they get up thirty house bills had been passed thirty.
That that typically won't even bring up for a vote Larry Larry is that what it -- -- is -- what do you think it ordinarily angry white billionaires argument coming from Harry.
I was dueling with a seventeen angry and I were to see if they'd -- me in their final -- -- You really care about America.
