Now, it’s John McCain’s turn. Where are his tax forms?

The DNC wants to know where McCain’s tax returns are. So do we. Given McCain’s utter contempt for campaign finance laws (he’s breaking the law), we really need full disclosure.

Yesterday, CNN reported on McCain’s access to lots of money from his second wife. Lots of money:

As heiress to her father’s stake in Hensley & Co. of Phoenix, Cindy McCain is an executive whose worth may exceed $100 million. Her beer earnings have afforded the GOP presidential nominee a wealthy lifestyle with a private jet and vacation homes at his disposal, and her connections helped him launch his political career — even if the millions remain in her name alone. Yet the arm’s-length distance between McCain and his wife’s assets also has helped shield him from conflict-of-interest problems.

Remember how the right wingers made Teresa Heinz Kerry (and her wealth) an issue in 2004? Remember that?
