The Agenda Project on Tuesday unveiled a new video that mocks Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney for allegedly not paying taxes and keeping his wealth in offshore tax havens.
“Today, Harry Reid’s secret source came forward to confirm that – as the Democratic Senate Majority Leader asserted – U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney has not paid taxes in ten years,” a satirical post that accompanied the video stated.
The Agenda Project jokingly explained that Miss Swiss Bank Account pageant winner Heidi Svenda Bernasconi, the star of the “I’m a Romney girl” video, was Reid’s source.
Reid recently told the Huffington Post that someone who had invested in Bain Capital, a company founded by Romney, had informed him that the GOP candidate “didn’t pay any taxes for 10 years.” The Republican candidate has released his tax returns for 2010 and vowed release his 2011 tax returns when they are ready, but has refused to release more. His 2010 tax return showed that hides his wealth in offshore tax havens in Switzerland and in the Cayman Islands.
“I’m a Romney girl, in a Romney world,” Bernasconi sings in the video. “Life is taxless, it’s fantastic. Silver-tip your hair, tax shelters everywhere, outsource nation, Bain is his creation.”
