Several Colorado candidates are refusing to make all financial documents public.
GOP gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes is refusing to release his tax returns. Instead, he turned them over to an Internet Web site run by campaign supporters. The site has posted a summary of the returns but not the documents themselves.
Jordan Maes, his daughter and executive aide, says GOP primary opponent Scott McInnis only released partial returns and Maes can choose what he will release and how he will release it.
McInnis released four years of tax forms, showing he earned $2.8 million and paid about $680,000 in taxes. He didn't release documents listing his business partnerships or his charitable giving.
Democratic opponent John Hickenlooper released 22 years of tax returns but he didn't release the names of charities he supported. The charities he supports has become controversial in Denver. In particular, opponents of illegal immigration want to know if Hickenlooper supports charities that encourage illegation immigration.
