These TV pitches were coordinated with the release of a new Obama campaign video that focused on Romney’s complex financial arrangements.
The video “raises important questions about Mitt Romney’s offshore accounts in foreign tax havens, including his mysterious corporation in Bermuda, his funds in the Cayman Islands, and the Swiss bank account he opened,” according to a campaign statement.
“Mitt Romney could be the first President in history to stash millions offshore,” said the statement, which provided no evidence of illegal or unethical behavior.
“Did he put his money there to avoid paying us taxes? We don’t know,” said campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt in the video.
“Is not technically breaking the law a high enough standard for someone who wants to be president of the United States?… Let’s make sure that question is being asked.”
