Remember the 2012 election when the left accused Mitt Romney of being a greedy non-taxpayer who kept wealth in offshore tax havens?
Remember all the times Bernie Sanders has accused evil millionaires and billionaires of doing it?
Will those people condemn Democrat John Kerry now?
The Daily Caller reports:
EXCLUSIVE: Kerry, Heinz Family Have Millions Invested In Offshore Tax Havens
Secretary of State John Kerry and his wife Teresa Heinz have invested millions of U.S. dollars through family trusts in at least 11 offshore tax havens, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.
The revelation comes on the heels of the release of the Panama Papers, a treasure trove of 11.5 million legal and financial records documenting how some of the world’s richest and most powerful people have used offshore bank accounts to conceal their wealth and avoid taxes.
Since the release of the papers, no American politician has been identified as using the secretive offshore accounts.
But a DCNF investigation has confirmed that the former Massachusetts Democratic senator and his billionaire wife, using an elaborate set of Heinz family trusts, have invested “more than $1 million” each into 11 separate offshore accounts — mainly hedge funds in the Cayman Islands.
It must be nice to be a Democrat.
You can get away with all kinds of things that are bad when Republicans do them.
