Romney To Tax Critics: “I Don’t Want People To Know How Much I Tithe”

Mitt Romney Refuses To Discusses Reluctance To Release Tax Returns

In a desperate attempt to deter the discussion about his tax returns, presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, attributes his reluctance to disclosing his tax returns to not wanting people to know how much money he and his wife tithe to the Mormon church.

In an interview with Parade Magazine, scheduled to be pulished on Sunday, Romney said his church “doesn’t publish how much people have given.” Romney  further explained stating, “This is done entirely privately. One of the downsides of releasing one’s financial information is that this is now all public, but we had never intended to our contributions to be known.”

Romney said his contributions to his church are “a very personal thing between ourselves and our commitment to our God and to our church.” Romney has failed to previously mention his reluctance to reveal charitable donations as a reason for keeping his taxes private. His wife, Ann Romney, accompanied her husband for the interview, said tithing makes her emotional. “When Mitt and I give that check I actually cry,” she said.
