Gov: Blackwell (R) Refuses to Release Tax Returns

The Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that gubernatorial candidate and Secretary of State Ken Blackwell (R-Cincinnati) has refused its request to make public his federal and state tax returns filed during the previous three years. A spokesman for Blackwell's opponent, Rep. Ted Strickland (D-Lisbon), said the congressman will release his returns, adding:
Given what has gone on in Columbus, there is need for more transparency and accountability in government and Ted has nothing to hide.
Indeed, I wonder what Blackwell wants to hide? Earlier this year his campaign took a hit when it was revealed that he owned shares in Diebold (the manufacturer of voting machines) and a company connected to gambling. What other interesting companies might be found among his personal assets?

Well, don't forget Barr Pharmaceuticals, the makers of the morning-after pill. Ken is just swimmings in conflicts of interest and hypocrisy!

Thanks Anon - I clicked on "comment" precisely to add that mention.

Blackwell is in a bad way - even George Bush's returns are released.

You;ve definitely got to assume he's got something to hide — and considering what's already public, what he's hiding must be a doozy!
