Mike Pence isn’t exactly “going rogue,” to borrow a phrase coined eight years ago by another candidate for vice president, former half-term Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
But the Indiana governor — and the Republicans’ nominee for vice president — is saying something his running mate isn’t saying.
He plans to release his personal tax returns before Election Day.
It’s a departure — and a welcomed one at that — from the refusal by GOP presidential nominee Donald J. Trump to release his tax returns.
Pence assures us it will be a quick read once they returns become known. I believe him.
Trump’s returns — which also should be released for public review — seem to present some issues for the GOP presidential nominee.
Is Trump as rich as he boasts? Has he given anything to charity? Has he paid his “fair share” of income tax, or any at all?
I welcome Gov. Pence’s decision to release his returns.
I do not, though, expect Gov. Pence to talk his running mate into following suit.
