Mitt Romney brushed off voices within his own party calling upon the release of additional years of tax returns on Tuesday, explaining again that Democrats would use such information to distort his record.
Via the Huffington Post:
"Oh, I think people in my party just say, ‘Look, this is a non-issue, just release the returns and it will all go away.’ My experience is that the Democratic Party these days has approached taxes in a very different way than in the past," Romney told WPXI, an NBC Affiliate in Pittsburgh. "Their opposition people look for anything they can find to distort, to twist, and to try and make negative, and I want to make this a campaign about the economy and creating jobs. And they want to make this campaign about attacking people and diverting attention from our job picture in this country."
Romney addressed the issue in a taped interview, meaning it was delivered before Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) suggested the former Massachusetts governor release them, notes Huffington Post's Sam Stein.
