poll: Should Gov Candidate Ken Block Release His Tax Returns?

Should Gov Candidate Ken Block Release His Tax Returns?


The only candidate -- GOP hopeful Ken Block -- that has refused to release his tax return is claiming that it will disclose confidential business information.

The failure by Block to release the info has attracted the criticism of Cranston Mayor Allan Fung's campaign manager - Patrick Sweeney. Fung and Block will face each other in September in the GOP primary.

"One of the steps we can take to restore faith in government is to voluntarily provide financial disclosure. Mayor Fung is committed to good government and transparency, which is why he released his returns," said Sweeney.

Block's Campaign Defends Decision

"Ken Block, unlike all the other candidates, actually runs a company and has a S-Corp.  The way it works, all the company's income is charged to you personally.  So his competitor could go in and look at contracts, bidding strategies, it's not something Ken's going to do," said Jeff Britt, Campaign Manager to Block.

Fung and Block battle - Conflicts v Obama

The battle over releasing tax returns is just the latest in the battle between Fung's and Block's campaigns.

"Ken absolutely agrees that when Governor, he'll release his tax returns, because he won't be running the company, and subsequently filing for the S-Corp.  Ken believes elected officials should release income tax return information so that people know our politicians don't have conflicts,"said Britt.

Similarly, Fung's Sweeney fired back, "It's bad enough that Ken Block voted twice for President Obama and supported ObamaCare, but now he's refusing to release his tax returns. This just adds to concerns that Republicans have about Ken Block. What is he hiding?"

Do you think Block should release his tax returns?
