U.S. Senator Brown, Warren to Release Tax Returns

Apr 27, 2012

Republican U.S. Senator Scott Brown and likely Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren are planning to release several years of tax returns.  WAMC’s Tristan O’Neill reports…

The two campaigns said they'll make the returns public today. 

The decision to release the returns followed more than a week of negotiations during which both campaigns haggled over when to unveil the returns and how many years to release.

Both campaigns are also hoping to use the information in the returns to take political jabs at each other.

Brown's campaign has tried to portray Warren as a wealthy out-of-touch liberal elitist while Democrats said Brown's returns will show he's far wealthier than his image of a truck-driving everyman.

The campaign is already well on its way to becoming one of the most expensive Senate contests in the nation this year.
