A top aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid finally divulged details about the source of Reid’s claim that Mitt Romney paid no taxes for 10 years — then retracted his statement, Fox News reports.
Aide Jose Parra told a Los Angeles radio station that the source “is an investor in Bain Capital, a Republican also, and somebody who has been dealing with Romney’s company for a long, long time and he has direct knowledge on this.”
But after Parra’s comments attracted media attention, he issued a statement to The Huffington Post on Thursday evening: “I do not know the party affiliation of the source, how long he invested with Bain, or his relationship to Romney beyond the fact that he was an investor with Bain Capital, as Senator Reid has previously stated.”
