California legislature passes bill requiring presidential candidates to release tax returns

California legislature passes bill requiring presidential candidates to release tax returns

Interesting, but that will have to wend its way through the court system, and I doubt if it will survive. If it does, look for other states to issue similarly specific requirements: must release telephone records, college transcripts, travel records, banking records ... whatever.

But I reckon Trump should issue some rage Tweets when he sees this!

(And it's not like The Donald was going to win California anyway.)

  1. I'd be very surprised if the states could impose that sort of thing on a federal candidate. This is the exact same type of reasoning why even a state referendum can't place term limits on Congresspeople.
