At a press conference on Monday, Patrick Hope made five years of tax returns available to members of the media. “Transparency is something that is very important in politics,” Hope said at the time. Hope also called on all nine of his opponents to release their returns.
On Tuesday, businessman and candidate Donald S. Beyer, Jr. announced that he would make one year’s worth of returns available to the media on May 15.
Patrick A. Hope, a Virginia state delegate from Arlington County who is running for the House of Representatives, stood on a wind-blown corner outside the Internal Revenue Service building Monday and called on Congress to tax million-dollar incomes at 45 percent.
Hope is one of 10 Democrats seeking to replace retiring Rep. James P. Moran (D-Va.) in the liberal 8th District. Like Hope, each is trying to stake out positions appealing to the left.
On Monday Patrick Hope will hold a press conference outside of the IRS Building in Washington, DC. Partnering with the PCCC, Hope will have 33,000 signatures they gathered in support of a Millionaire’s Tax requiring millionaires and giant corporations to pay their fair share in taxes. Hope will also announce the release of his tax returns- and call on his opponents in the June 10th Democratic primary to do the same.
One would expect that most demonstrations outside IRS headquarters in D.C. involve calls for lower taxes. This afternoon, however, congressional candidate Del. Patrick Hope (D) held a press conference outside the IRS to call for higher taxes on the wealthiest Americans.
