McSneaky: What are the McCain’s Hiding?

Cindy McCain will never make her tax returns publicFormer first lady Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton had no problem releasing her tax returns to the public.

Michelle Obama, a potential first lady, released her tax returns with her husband’s as well.

However, Mrs. John McCain, heiress to a beer fortune and potential first lady, refuses to ever make public her McCain share of their wealth as reported in her US tax returns.  Cindy McCain has an estimated worth in excess of $100 million US Dollars–that’s a lot of beer.

From Yahoo! News:

WASHINGTON – Cindy McCain says she will never make her tax returns public even if her husband wins the White House and she becomes the first lady.

…Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said Cindy McCain’s refusal to release her tax returns gives the appearance of a double standard on the part of her husband.

“What is John McCain trying to hide?” Dean said in a statement. “Throughout this campaign, he has acted like his own calls for openness and accountability apply to everyone but himself. Now he thinks he can bring that same double standard to the White House.”
