After Republicans let loose against Harry Reid on Sunday for claiming Mitt Romney didn't pay taxes for 10 years, the Senate majority leader's chief of staff returned the favor.
"They’re a bunch of cowards, and they’re avoiding the issue," David Krone told Politico. "Lindsey Graham, Reince Priebus -- they’re a bunch of henchmen for Romney, and they’re all reading off the same talking points. They couldn’t hold a candle to Harry Reid."
Krone defended his boss, saying Reid merely repeated "the fact of what he was told. To turn it around, all their childish rants this weekend about calling Reid a 'liar' and all that, it just shows you how scared they are that Harry Reid was telling the truth."
According to Politico, Krone knows who the source of Reid's claims is -- he has declined to publicly identify the individual but says it's a successful investor to Bain familiar with Romney's tax records.
