The race for governor in Colorado took a turn this weekend, as the candidates released tax returns to the public. Democrat John Hickenlooper released more than two decades of returns. Republican Scott McInnis released only a couple of years’ worth, and he released those returns reluctantly. Indeed, on April 15 he told Fox News Radio in Loveland that he wasn’t going to comply with a Denver Post request to release his returns. “I’m not going to invite myself to my own beating,” he told hosts Keith Weinman and Gail Fallen. Although the Fox News hosts didn’t ask him to elaborate, media outlets and activist groups have taken up the cause.
