For reasons that are not immediately clear, Mitt Romney couldn't file his taxes on time this year, and requested an extension, his campaign announced just now, moments before everyone tuned out for the weekend. According to a statement, Romney will file and release his 2011 taxes "sometime in the next six months, and prior to the election," and also probably late on a Friday afternoon.
