Mitt Romney (American’s 2012 republican presidential candidate) is currently under scrutiny for tax evasion. What started as an attack on Romney’s business expertise at Bain Corporation as a “job creator,” has turned into a much more serious issue of potential tax fraud/evasion as Romney refuses to give out his past tax returns.
Becoming president requires a lot of transparencies, and the American people have access to a lot of information about the president’s records, including tax returns. Romney refusing to give them up throws suspicion on their integrity, and the Obama administration has leap at the opportunity.
Meanwhile, political commentator Rush Limbaugh has made claims that the new Christopher Nolan Batman movie is a "liberal attack on Romney" after discovering that the name of the villain in the movie, Bane, sounds like Bain. Doesn’t seem to matter that Bane was created back in 1993, has been a long standing antagonist in the Batman universe, and that this movie was in production way before any skepticism even befell Romney.
