No Disclosure?

None of your business: Teresa wonít give up tax records

Quote:
WASHINGTON - Teresa Heinz Kerry's vast wealth is no secret on the presidential campaign trail - but when it comes to her tax returns, it's a different story.

"As she is not a candidate for any office, she will not be making additional disclosures,'' said Jeff Lewis, Heinz Kerry's chief of staff.

Unlike her candidate-husband, Sen. John F. Kerry, Heinz Kerry said yesterday she won't make public her income tax returns, Lewis said.

Heinz Kerry's personal wealth has been an issue in Kerry's campaign - with opponents suggesting repeatedly the Bay State senator is likely to dip into his wife's wealth if he falters against President Bush.

By most estimates, he'd have a lot of dipping to do.

Heinz Kerry, heiress to the Heinz ketchup millions, has an estimated worth of about $550 million - including primary ownership of four family homes in Idaho, on Nantucket, in rural Pennsylvania and in the Georgetown section of Washington.
Do you fight the issue and let it linger as a campaign issue, or disclose the information??

She's not the candidate, she's the candidate's spouse. I think it's OK.

What secrets do you think are there? I don't understand what difference her disclosure or non-disclosure makes to Kerry's campaign. She's rich, we know.

did Laura Bush release her return? or did she file jointly with the president? if Heinz files seperately and Kerry released his return, there is no issue, no problem. I doubt he would dip into her money though. First, he's doing fine moneywise right now and second, he mortgaged his house to fund his primary campaign. does that sound like a guy dipping into his rich wife's stash?

besides, I think alot of her money is probably tied up into a charitable trust and would recommend everyone read the Wall St. Journal's story about it in today's paper.
