Releasing tax returns, that is:
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) has released five years of federal and state income tax returns on her website — the first senator to release returns from her entire public career, according to her office. Spokesman Glen Caplin said that Gillibrand wanted to contribute to the “ongoing national debate” about releasing returns. Democrats have been pressuring GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney to release ten years of his tax returns, including his time in private life. But Democratic leaders like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) have refused to release their own returns.
