Harry Reid Heard From Some Guy That Mitt Romney Didn’t Pay Taxes for Ten Years

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) speaks to the press after the Democrats' weekly policy luncheon in the U.S. Capitol building March 6, 2012  in Washington, DC.  Reid criticized Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's statement that the U.S. should use military force against Iran if the country develops nuclear weapons saying that lawmakers must be "very, very cautious".

What's Mitt Romney hiding in his tax returns? Harry Reid finally figured it out:

Saying he had "no problem with somebody being really, really wealthy," Reid sat up in his chair a bit before stirring the pot further. A month or so ago, he said, a person who had invested with Bain Capital called his office.

"Harry, he didn't pay any taxes for 10 years," Reid recounted the person as saying.

"He didn't pay taxes for 10 years! Now, do I know that that's true? Well, I'm not certain," said Reid.

Oh, wait, did we say "figured it out"? We meant "heard an insane rumor from a guy who has seemingly no way of knowing anything about Mitt Romney's taxes." Awesome scoop, Harry Reid.
