I always believed all candidates were vetted. It seems reasonable that the vetting includes a look at the tax filings of the candidate. When someone new gets a Top Secret clearance a back ground investigation is performed by OSI. The vetting and the BI seem like an automatic call to me.
So my question is simple, in the case of the President of the US, who vets, who does the BI, who specifies that a candidate has no police record. Who protects the American people.
This year has been excellent at defining who pays for elections. Who pays for legislation. Who drives voters toward the polls and who drives them away. I would really like to know we are not relying on some political party for these administrative functions.
