    No Disclosure: Presidential Candidates Defy Tradition, Refuse to Release Taxes

    Since Watergate, Only Clinton Refused to Release Income Information

    EXCERPT

    Former Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C.,worked for a hedge fund while heading a poverty center in between his presidential campaigns. But since he isn't telling, voters can't know how much money he earned.

    Former Gov. Mitt Romney, R-Mass., says his wife, Ann, once donated to Planned Parenthood, but that he never contributed to an abortion-rights group himself. But there's no way for the media and the public to check that claim.


    Candidates Keep Taxes in the Dark

    In a break with the tradition of recent presidential campaigns, most of the major presidential candidates aren't releasing their income-tax filings.
