JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Josh Romney on Tuesday tweeted a photo of his father, Mitt Romney, paying his taxes, alluding to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) charge during the 2012 election that Mitt Romney did not pay his taxes for ten years.

Reid claimed that an official at Bain Capital, Romney’s former employer, told him that the presidential candidate hadn’t paid his taxes. And Reid used the statistic to call on Romney to release his tax returns.

Romney disputed Reid’s claim, but Reid stood by his remarks.

It later came out that Reid heard that Romney hadn’t paid taxes from Jon Hunstman Sr., according to a book by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann called “Double Down.” Huntsman denied that he was Reid’s source.
