read my lips, no new tax returns!1

so now that the romneys have definitively ruled out releasing anything that could inform the public about their investments in soylent green2, is there a chance that someone could leak copies of the tax returns?

there could be as many as two dozen people who have access to copies of the undisclosed tax documents. aside from filing them with the IRS, the firm that prepared his taxes must have copies (and that could be several firms, a law firm, an accounting firm, etc.), and romney gave the mccain campaign 23 years of returns in 2008. unless those copies were shredded, where are they now? all it takes is one disgruntled and possibly criminal minded person in the right place at the right time...
