    If a person isn't crooked when they get into politics It's a pretty safe bet they will be by the time they exit the political arena. If the IRS can do a 7 year audit then it's reasonable to ask candidates to provide those same records.

    If someone is not open and forthcoming in the very beginning of an office they are seeking then just imagine how they will be if elected to office?

    I certainly appreciate your honesty Larry and I do agree that 7 to 10 years of financials is something that should be considered for future candidates.
