California governor signs law demanding Trump release tax returns for spot on primary ballot

(Worthy News) - Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill Tuesday that would force presidential candidates to release their tax returns in order to appear on the state’s primary ballot, a move apparently aimed at President Trump.

The bill, named the Presidential Tax Transparency and Accountability Act, requires presidential and gubernatorial candidates to disclose the last five years of their tax returns. The measure passed the legislature with no Republican support and took effect immediately when Newsom signed it Tuesday.

“As one of the largest economies in the world and home to one in nine Americans eligible to vote, California has a special responsibility to require this information of presidential and gubernatorial candidates,” Newsom said in a statement. “These are extraordinary times and states have a legal and moral duty to do everything in their power to ensure leaders seeking the highest offices meet minimal standards, and to restore public confidence. The disclosure required by this bill will shed light on conflicts of interest, self-dealing, or influence from domestic and foreign business interest.” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
