No one can be president who has received amnesty for a serious crime.
In 2009 the Internal Revenue Service began to crackdown on the use of secret overseas bank accounts as tax havens. They offered a reduced penalty and amnesty to taxpayers who came forward before Oct. 15, 2010.
During the summer of 2010 Switzerland's largest bank announced that it would disclose the names of more than 4,000 U. S. account holders.
Romney's Swiss bank account was closed in 2010. A number of investigative journalist have speculated that the reason Romney has not (and will not) release his tax returns prior to 2010 is because doing so would prove that he had received amnesty for a serious crime, which would most assuredly destroy any chance of him becoming president.
There seem to be no other plausible explanation for him to continue to refuse to release any of these past tax returns and endure the political pounding from President Obama and his supporters – not to mention an ever growing number of influential Republicans calling for him to release his tax returns.
If it is true that he received amnesty from the IRS and it is verified before the Republican National Convention, Romney will not be the GOP’s nominee.
