Jon Huntsman Sr. vigorously denied rumors he's been Majority Leader Harry Reid's secret source on the issue of Mitt Romney's taxes and in a surprise move said he thinks the Republican presidential candidate should make more of his financial info public.
"I feel very badly that Mitt won't release his taxes and won't be fair with the American people," Huntsman Sr. said Friday. "Mr. Romney ought to square with the American people and release his taxes like any other candidate."
The wealthy Utah industrialist said that and more to Greg Sargent, who runs The Washington Post's Plum Line blog. Sargent was looking into Reid's claim Romney hadn't paid any taxes for a decade. Romney denies that and Reid has received heavy criticism for lobbying the complaint without naming his source or having any supporting data.
