Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis has introduced a potential new campaign issue by refusing to release his tax returns to media.
The likely question will become: What is he hiding?
As the Denver Post reports, McInnis is not alone rejecting requests to turn over his returns for scrutiny; GOP rival Dan Maes has done likewise.
John Hickenlooper, the Democratic candidate for governor, has apparently said he will turn over 10 years of returns.
But looking on the bright side for the GOP, Hickenlooper has pledged to keep his campaign positive, reducing the chances you will hear him blasting McInnis for keeping his financial history hidden.
Here's more from the Post:
McInnis represented the 3rd Congressional District from 1993 through 2004, the last year he filed public disclosures. At that time, his assets were valued between $1.5 million and $5 million and included everything from stock to real estate investments. Since then, McInnis has been a partner at the Denver office of Hogan & Hartson and is a paid board member of KSL Capital Partners, a private equity firm specializing in travel and leisure enterprises. His campaign declined to disclose his board compensation
