The California Accountability Project, a campaign of the Democratic Governors Association, works to oppose billionaire Republican Meg Whitman’s campaign for governor. The latest ad should really gain some traction. You can watch it below:
Remember that Meg Whitman is running her campaign claiming her experience in the private sector qualifies her to be governor. Beyond her involvement with the now indicted Goldman Sachs, at which she was sued by the company stakeholders and forced to pay the company back, and her abysmal record with hiring minorities in California, we really don’t know much about her taxes. Candidates generally release their taxes and in March Whitman agreed to release 10 years worth of tax returns. She seems to have changed her mind.
It’s kind of ridiculous for a politician to run for office on her business background and assert a tax policy while refusing to tell the voters how much she has made and very importantly, where she has made it. Whitman is stashing millions in off-shore tax havens. The truth is, we don’t know if she’s paying taxes on it because she won’t release the records.
