Inside Mitt Romney’s Tax-Dodging Cayman Schemes

This whole Mitt Romney releasing his taxes is going to get ugly fairly quickly and it’s only going to get worse the more Democrats and the media pile on the issue. Which they should, partially as payback for all the piling on conservatives did for Obama’s birth certificate, but also because who the hell wants to elect a president that’s a tax dodger?

Anyway, Gawker has gotten a hold of 950 pages worth of Romney’s supposed tax-dodging schemes, based upon “internal financial documents for 21 cryptically named entities in which Mitt Romney had invested—at minimum—more than $10 million as of 2011.” Here’s what Gawker has found so far:

1. Equity Swaps, AIVs, and Mitt Romney’s Other Tax-Dodging Tricks

2. Mitt Romney’s Endless ‘Retirement’ Package

3. How Mitt Romney Puts His Money Where Obama’s Mouth Is

4. Derivatives, Short Sales, and Mitt Romney’s Other Exotic Financial Instruments

5. Mitt Romney Is the National Enquirer’s Banker

Worse for Romeny, Gawker has decided to crowd-source the investigation so people with more knowledge on this matter can shed better light on the documents.

Question: Why is Gawker doing this and not the New York Times or Washington Post?
