Ohio Republicans weigh in on whether Romney should release tax returns
People are calling on Romney to release a decade's worth of his returns

Some Republican leaders throughout the country are calling on GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney to release his tax returns. Romney has released one year of his returns but many are calling on him to release a decade’s worth. As Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles reports, now some key Ohioans are weighing in on the issue.

Republican House Speaker Bill Batchelder recently said this to Bob Conklin, the host of “In the Spotlight”, a public affairs show produced by Time-Warner’s Northeast Ohio Network.

“I would say for Heaven’s sake, get them out there and get away from it and deal with those huge situations that are a lot more important than whatever his tax situation is.”

Now Batchelder has sent out an email statement saying Romney has gone above and beyond what is required by law.  Batchelder says he suggested Romney release his tax returns because President Obama’s re-election campaign will "continue to make outrageous accusations and attempt to distort Governor Romney’s impressive record of leadership until he does."  Governor Kasich, who was under fire for not releasing a decade’s worth of tax returns when he ran for office, responds this way when asked what Romney should do with his returns.

“Ah, I don’t, I don’t know. Mitt Romney has to do what he’s comfortable with.  I don’t have anything else to say other than that.  I just think, now, it’s not so much about his tax returns, it’s about who is going to create jobs to get the country moving again.”

Democrats, in the past week, have been hammering Romney for not releasing his tax returns and suggest the Republican candidate refuses to do so because he has questionable investments that could cause people to think twice about voting for him.
