Picking a GOP running mate has not swept Mitt Romney's tax return issue under the rug, at least here at The Last Word.
The Republican ticket indicated they will only each release two years of their tax returns, at most. That goes against years of precedent in presidential politics. But that can happen, only if the presidential debate and vice presidential debate moderators go along with it.
In the Rewrite, MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell encouraged viewers to tell the debate moderators you want them to ask Romney-Ryan why they are hiding their tax returns.
