Tennessee Trey’s Tax Return Problems Haunt Him in IN-09 Debate


INDIANAPOLIS – Tennessee Trey Hollingsworth refused to release his tax returns, and now it’s haunting him on the campaign trail. Just yesterday during the highly publicized IN-09 debate, everyday Hoosiers pressured Tennessee Trey on why he still refuses to release his tax returns.

Is it because the returns will show he’s not actually a Hoosier? Will the tax returns show how out of touch he is with Hoosier families? These questions leave Hoosiers wondering: Tennessee Trey – what are you hiding from us?

From television to print, check out all the coverage of Tennessee Trey dodging questions about his own tax returns below.

Bloomington Herald-Times: “The biggest response from those at the luncheon came when the candidates were asked about releasing their tax returns.”

WTHR: “The two squared off in a debate in Greenwood today where the issue of releasing taxes was brought up. Yoder has released hers. Hollingsworth has not.”

WISH: “Democrat Shelli Yoder even hit Trey Hollingsworth (R) for not releasing his tax returns. ‘I hope that we can see through tax returns where exactly these nine companies are. Just tell us where these nine companies are, because I want to know, we want to know, where does your income come from? What are your interests here?,’ said Yoder.”

Statehouse File: “The debate remained friendly until the candidates were asked in the final question if they would release their tax returns. Hollingsworth said the only taxes he’s concerned with are Hoosier taxes and called his opponent ‘obsessed’ with his financial information. Yoder, whose tax returns are posted on her website, fired back, saying Hollingsworth moved to Indiana ‘to buy a congressional seat.’”

Indiana Public Media: “Yoder and Hollingsworth didn’t mention each other until the end of the debate, when the moderator asked if the candidates would release their tax returns in the spirit of transparency.”

WIBC: “The debate was relatively informal, and stayed friendly until the final question on whether the candidates should release their tax returns. Yoder, who’s already been criticizing Hollingsworth for not doing so, noted his move from Tennessee to Jeffersonville eight months before the Republican primary, and accused him of ‘trying to buy an Indiana congressional seat.’ She says Hollingsworth should release his taxes to back up his claim to have started 11 businesses in Indiana. Hollingsworth calls Yoder ‘obsessed’ with his tax returns, and told the Greenwood Chamber audience, ‘The taxes I’m concerned about are your taxes.’”


Let’s elect more Hoosier Democrats
We can't sit this one out.
