"Her hands aren't clean. She can't claim to be disclosing anything until she discloses the returns of her husband, the Enron lobbyist. Under Shannon O'Brien, the state Pension Board lost millions by buying Enron stock when it was collapsing — what is she hiding?" – Eric Fehrnstrom, Romney spokesman in his 2002 race against O'Brien.
This is an old story by now but it hasn't lost its relevance given Romney's continued stonewalling. O'Brien had already released thirteen years of her own tax returns, and Romney still didn't think it was enough. Why is it so difficult for him to grasp that he should abide by the rules that he has personally imposed on everyone else?
