Hattip: Scrutiny Hooligans:
The Asheville Citizen-Times today reported that Pat McCrory has cancelled a scheduled press conference with Jeb Bush set for Thursday. It is clear that Pat McCrory doesn’t want to face mounting questions about why he won’t release his tax returns.
Making matters worse for McCrory, his guest, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, has called on Presidential candidate Mitt Romney to release his tax returns. Bush also has a history of releasing his own taxes when running for Governor. Bush has released over 20 years of tax returns across three campaigns for Governor.
“Clearly Jeb Bush thinks transparency is important for a candidate for Governor, but we won’t hear that tomorrow. McCrory has put a muzzle on all attempts to get the truth about what he does for a living and who is paying him,” said Gerrick Brenner, Executive Director of Progress North Carolina Action.
