Harrington Calls Out Wasserman Schultz To Release Her Tax Returns

By Javier Manjarres

DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has just bet the house, again. Wasserman Schultz  is again calling on Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney to release his tax returns. The Weekly Standard and Fox News picked up on this yesterday, citing Wasserman Schultz’s first request of Romney to release his tax returns back in April.

In the article, Wasseman Schultz’s Republican opponent in the November general election, Karen Harrington, calls out Wasserman Schultz, asking her to release her tax returns. (Source-Fox News)

WCVB-BOS: Are you the best attack dog on this particular issue considering you’ve never released your income taxes?
REP. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: Absolutely. I’m not running for president. Mitt Romney is running for president.
WCVB-BOS: You are a public official, though, are you not?
WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: I file full financial disclosure required under the law. Mitt Romney is actually the first candidate in modern history to only release one year of a tax return.


Here is Harrington’s press release from April 15 (Tax Day)-

 Karen Harrington Calls On Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz to Release Her Tax Returns

This week millions of taxpaying Americans will fulfill their requirement of filing their tax returns by paying any and all taxes due to the federal government. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been asking Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney to release his 2011 tax return even after Governor Romney released his 2010 tax return.

Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz’s request of Governor Romney to release his tax returns screams of hypocrisy, because to the best of our knowledge, Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz has never released a single tax return of her own.  As a Member of Congress, she is required to release a yearly ‘financial disclosure,’ this yearly disclosure is not a tax return.

While asking for Governor Romney to release his past tax returns, and in keeping with the spirit of President Obama’s call for ‘full transparency,’ we ask Congressman Wasserman Schultz to release her own tax returns. 

Karen Harrington will release her tax returns upon  media requests and ask that Congressman Wasserman Schultz do the same.-Karen Harrington

Now in light of Wasserman Schultz’s recent request of Governor Mitt Romney, Harrington reaffirms her call for Wasserman Schultz to release her tax returns-

Will Rep.Wasserman Schultz Release Her Tax Returns?

Congressman Debbie Wasserman Schultz continues to ignore our request for her to release her tax returns. While she continues to harangue Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to release his tax returns, Debbie doesn’t believe that full transparency applies to herself, as she has dodged our request to release her own tax returns by stating that she is “not running for President.” 

Debbie may not be not running for President, but she is running for federal office.  We believe that what’s good for the goose is good for the gander- if you are repeatedly calling for your political opponents to fully disclose their tax returns, Debbie should be prepared to do the same.

To this point, Debbie continues to dodge our request for her tax returns. The question now arises- just what is the Congresswoman hiding?

In the interests of full disclosure, we once again call on Congressman Wasserman Schultz to release her most recently filed tax returns. Karen Harrington has already pledged to immediately disclose her tax returns once Congressman Wasserman Schultz decides to disclose her own.-Karen Harrington(Source)

    To defeat Debbie Wasserman Schultz we need the most electable candidate and that candidate is Juan Eliel Garcia.
    Vote Juan Eliel Garcia for Congress District 23!

    What is “Dumb Debbie” hiding???? It is common knowledge that for years she has hid what she does in the evenings and with whom. “Dumb Debbie” went to Washington having a hard time paying her bills…………..some say she is now a millionaire. So, how did that happen?????????????? Did some of the guys she hangs with at night give her cash or did some of the lobbyists give her “insider stock tips”. Somebody needs to investigate Deb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • DebraP

    Perhaps if Wasserman Schultz wasn’t so busy licking her wounds she’d have time to release her tax returns.

  • carol

    I always thought only Sarah Jessica Parker(another three namer) could have a horse face and look stupid, but, now, Debbie Wasserman Schultz has her beat..both blonde, I think, both nit wits, this I know, and both looking for political standing with the rest of the far left…Each time a “movie star” sides with the far left, that is one more that I will not watch or rent or buy their movies…the list is getting long, which is ok, because I had rather go to friends homes and play monopoly with them…more fun, less money to spend, and I can sleep at night knowing I didn’t contribute to their bank accounts so, they could contribute to obama’s…. She is a low life person because she is thinking of no one but herself, but Karma can sure come back and kick you in the big-ass-rear..another three namer

  • Bill_B

    It’s, “do as I say , not as I do” with ms. Debbie. Apparently she has her own Swiss investment(s) news at 11.

  • Durham

    Harrington’s promise to release her tax returns once Wasserman-Schultz releases her, is a pathetic example of asking someone to do something you yourself have failed to do. When you request someone, in this case to release her tax returns, you usually do it first to show everyone your sincerity and that you have nothing to hide. Her request is nothing more than a hollow political gimmick and illustrates her hypocriasy of not following what she request of someone else. For this to even deserved news coverage without pointing out the hypocrisy of her request is ridiculous, and is just another example of Fox News not being “Fair and Balanced”

  • Jeff

    Why should Debbie Wassermann Schultz release her tax returns? She has no worries about winning. It’s a hopeless cause to run against her. She has this district in the bag. I have spoken to many elderly voters who think she is wonderful and that she is looking out for their best interests. The disparaging remarks about her looks shows the lack of intellect in your arguments. BTW – Have you seen her latest twitter picture – vavavoom!!! However if I were to choose one Republican candidate among the many, I would like Joe Kaufman to win the primary. I always chuckle when he speaks.

    • Stan Lee

      I know what you mean about those elderly voters. Most of them are unaware that Franklin D. Roosevelt is not on the ballot anymore.

  • Bill in Tennessee

    Maybe “wasserman” translates as “turns tricks for $”. That might explain her sudden wealth, you sure can’t attribute it to her brains.

    • Stan Lee

      Up close and personal, you’d cross her off your list for nightime activities. Now, if there were a string of small stores and gas stations being robbed….that could be worth investigating!:):)

  • harry houdini

    WS is a mean in your face person. You can be politically effective by being an intellectual, hard working person but she has choose the other route. Nobody likes a bully!

  • Linda

    I can’t stomach this woman. She is a lying hypocrite just like most demonrats. Just like Obama and Holder, what does she have to hide? Obviously, something.

      Love it, that made me spit iced tea out at the screen laughing. She is kind of like a rabid poodle, but add the annoying screech of a hungry baby vulture….always expecting someone else to come and feed her.

    Karen Harrington should ask “Debbie Dumb” the following questions:
    * Have you ever purchased stock after being given a “tip” by a Washington lobbyist?
    * Who is the lobbyist you are constantly seen with at night in Washington and what is your relationship to him?
    * Aren’t you embarrassed that you can’t engage in debate with anyone on anything and all you can do is “read key points” from a “script prepared for you”?
    * When do you intend to apologize to Stanley Tate, a very distinguished Jewish leader, whose table you are not even fit to sit at?

    “Debbie Dumb” is a horrible person who should be defeated aand then “run out of Florida”!!!!!


  • bay

    Hey Debbie why don’t you ask our president to come out with some of his historical records like his college transcripts. He is supposed to be the most transparent president we ever had……what is he hiding?

  • Special Operator

    When the Republicans get to name the next U.S Attorney in South Florida, the first thing he/she needs to do is to investigate how “Debbie Dumb” went to Washington broke and is now a millionaire with offshore investments. “Debbie Dumb” would look nice in the “federal prison” garb!!!!! It didn’t take “Debbie Dumb” long to become a “crook”!!!!!!! AND………………WE KNOW HOW SHE DID IT!!

    “I’m not running for President.” LOL That’s the same line Obama used when Alan Keyes called him out over his status as a U.S. citizen back when he was running for Illinois rep. Keep up the pressure Karen. Call her out for who she is. She’s so stupid, she’s bound to destroy her own campaign to protect her secrets.
