During Claire McCaskill’s failed bid for Governor in 2004, she said:
“My husband and I are a team. We are married, and we share everything — assets, children and a house,” […] “My family is supportive of my efforts. Some have implied that the assets of my family don’t belong to me. That notion is pretty archaic.”
(Terry Ganey, “McCaskill Campaigns Hard, Stresses Her Qualifications For State’s Top Job,” St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 7/18/04)
Got it. So in 2004 when she lent her gubernatorial campaign money – it was hers and Joseph Shepard’s. But 14 years later, after amassing major wealth from Shepard’s business during her time in the U.S. Senate, their combined assets no longer apply?
This is hypocrisy at its finest.
Claire McCaskill refuses to share her husband’s tax returns because it’s the key to all her secrets – their personal benefits from the $131 million in taxpayer subsidies, the true value of how little they pay in taxes due to their offshore investments in the Caymans, who’s paying for the “damn plane.” The Senator needs to come clean with the people of Missouri and release her husband’s tax returns.
