U.S. Senator Bob Menendez will allow reporters to view six years of personal income tax returns on Friday, his campaign said today.
Menendez will let give reporters four hours to review tax returns from 2012 through 2017.
“Senator Menendez is meeting the highest standards for access and accountability,” said campaign chairman Michael Soliman. “Just as he has previously, Senator Menendez is releasing all of his tax returns dating back to his last election. Unlike his opponent, Senator Menendez has no fear of letting the public and reporters see his complete tax returns and how he made his money – which is from public service rather than ripping off cancer patients.”
The Hugin campaign is unimpressed with Soliman’s claim of transparency.
“If Senator Menendez brings records for all the private flights he took, gifts he received, and fancy vacations he went on courtesy of his convicted felon friend, then we’ll be impressed,” said Hugin spokesman Nick Iacovella. “Menendez bragging about transparency is like Salomon Melgen saying he was a good eye doctor.”
Hugin made his 2016 and 2017 tax returns available for media inspection earlier this month.
