"As we know, he has refused to release his tax returns. If a person coming before this body wanted to be a Cabinet officer, he couldn't be if he had the same refusal Mitt Romney does about tax returns. So the word is out that he has not paid any taxes for 10 years. Let him prove he has paid taxes, because he has not." Harry Reid on the floor of the Senate in 2012 just prior to the election.
"I was told by an extremely credible source that Romney has not paid taxes for 10 years." Harry Reid in a statement released the same day.
After the election, when asked if he regretted making untrue statements about Romney and taxes:
"He didn't win, did he?"
