Romney Son Takes Tax Day Swipe at Harry Reid

The former presidential candidate's son, Josh, tweeted a picture to Sen. Harry Reid yesterday of his father, Mitt, paying taxes. During the 2012 campaign season, Reid claimed someone had told him Romney hadn't done so in the past decade

It came a little early for Throwback Thursday, but Josh Romney’s Tax Tuesday tweet at Sen. Harry Reid was certainly a throwback to the contentious 2012 presidential race.

Josh—son of Mitt, the erstwhile presidential candidate—posted a picture Tuesday of his dad standing in line at the post office to file his taxes. He captioned the pic with a dig at Reid, the Democratic leader.

In the midst of the 2012 campaign, Reid made the claim that someone told him Mitt Romney “didn’t pay any taxes for 10 years.” Romney flatly denied that claim and called on Reid to reveal his source, which the the Nevada Democrat refused to do.

Neither Reid nor the elder Romney took time to respond to Josh’s needling tweet (at least via Twitter). The real surprise here is that Romney—multimillionaire, owner of many homes—files his taxes by himself by standing in line at the post office.
