Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has continued his attack on Mitt Romney, claiming the Republican presidential candidate did not pay taxes for a 10-year period. Sen. Reid claims the info came from an anonymous source at Bain Capital, Romney's former company.
In response, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, Reince Priebus, on Sunday's Fox News, called Sen. Reid a “dirty liar" (video below).
In an interview with Politico.com, Reid’s chief of staff David Krone responded by calling Republicans “a bunch of cowards” and “henchmen for Romney."
“To turn it around, all their childish rants this weekend about calling Reid a ‘liar’ and all that, it just shows you how scared they are that Harry Reid was telling the truth."
Sen. Reid's spokesman Adam Jentleson backed up the credibility of Sen. Reid's anonymous Bain Capital source and dared Romney to debunk Sen. Reid's claim by releasing more tax returns.
Jentleson told TalkingPointsMemo.com: “It’s clear Mitt Romney is hiding something, and the only way for him to clear this up is to be straight with the American people and release his tax returns.”
