On Tuesday, after four months of stalling and dozens of calls for Steve Pearce to release his tax returns, the message finally sank in… but for the wrong candidate.
The Albuquerque Journal reported: “Republican congressional candidate Janice Arnold-Jones released her state and federal tax returns on Tuesday“
Janice Arnold Jones—maybe seeking to salvage something from her racism-tainted campaign, whose lowlights include fundraising off an appearance by racist former felon Dinesh D’Souza and questioning Deb Haaland’s Native American identity because, of all things, she was raised in a military family—released her tax returns on Tuesday.
Steve Pearce has yet to release any tax returns, leaving New Mexico voters completely in the dark as to what shell corporations and potential tax dodges he’s concealing from public scrutiny. Just six days remain before New Mexicans go to the polls and Pearce continues to hide the truth from them.
“Take a hint, Steve. If even Janice Arnold-Jones’ racist, flailing campaign can figure out how to get her tax returns out before voting starts, you owe New Mexicans at least that level of transparency. It’s time to come clean.” said Marg Elliston, Chair of the Democratic Party of New Mexico.
The Albuquerque Journal reported this week: “Pearce’s assets in 2017 were valued at between $7.5 million and more than $36 million, based on the financial disclosure report he filed earlier this year as a member of Congress. He reported holdings in several companies, including a Hobbs-based firm that rents party equipment, such as tables and chairs.”
