Or not. A top aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told the Huffington Post that the "source" responsible for telling the Senator that Mitt Romney hasn't paid taxes in ten years, is a Republican. After the story gained some steam, the same aide quickly backtracked, telling HuffPo he actually has no clue as to the source's political affiliation.
A top aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) provided new details Wednesday on the identity of Reid's source for the claim that Mitt Romney did not pay taxes for 10 years. Romney has since called on Reid to release the name of the source.
"This person is an investor in Bain Capital, a Republican also, and somebody who has been dealing with Romney's company for a long, long time and he has direct knowledge of this," said Reid aide Jose Parra, referring to Romney's tax returns.
"I do not know the party affiliation of the source, how long he invested with Bain, or his relationship to Romney beyond the fact that he was an investor with Bain Capital, as Senator Reid has previously stated."
I wonder if the aide actually knows if the source exists....
