Former Mayor Chavez ripped Berry for not agreeing to release his tax returns. Chavez stated, "I know it's not comfortable, but the public has a right to know. That's open and transparent government." Berry talked-the-talk but did not walk-the-walk. The big question is why? What is Berry hiding? Will the tax information expose Berry via his wife having received some of the contracts or moneys from the Paseo Del Norte project or other City government contracts?
Berry's failure to disclose his tax returns is the same as lying. Clearly no one disputes lying is by any act or omission. Berry is refusing to release all the pertinent information; that makes it a lie and him a liar.
Berry lauds himself on openness and transparency in government but why can’t he do the same? Here is Berry’s chance to redeem himself and correct the wrong he committed during the last election and show he REALLY believes in transparency and openness.
So yes, Berry is egg-straodinary. Berry has an egg-straodinary way of putting egg on every voters face when he fails to do the right thing. Notwithstanding, if there is nothing wrong, if there is nothing to hide and Berry has done nothing wrong, why not release all of his tax returns from the last election and the current one as well?
