David Axelrod: Romney ‘Most Secretive Candidate’ Since Nixon

On Thursday, David Axelrod, senior adviser to President Barack Obama, took aim at Mitt Romney‘s offshore bank accounts. Romney’s gotten flak over the issue before, but Axelrod doubled down on the criticism, deeming Romney “most secretive candidate that we’ve seen, frankly, since Richard Nixon.”

The remarks came in an interview with ABC News. “The only reason to have these accounts is to shelter your taxes,” he said.

Axelrod added:

The question is, exactly what did he pay, and I think that he — there’s only one way to answer that question. If you don’t have anything to hide, why not just release that information? And Gov. Romney really doesn’t have a good answer for that.
