Oregon Gov. Kate Brown (D) said she supports requiring President Trump and other presidential candidates to release their tax returns in order to appear on the ballot for Election Day.

“We have to hold our elected officials accountable. I think this is just one way of doing it,” Brown said in an interview with HuffPost published Monday.

The article goes on to state the following:

Brown’s remarks follow recent action in California, where Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) last month signed into law a measure that would require candidates for president and governor to disclose federal tax returns from the five most recent years in order to appear on the primary ballot.

Legislation requiring presidential and vice-presidential candidates to disclose tax returns before they can appear on the Oregon ballot in general elections has already been introduced in the state Senate, which is Democrat-controlled.

    Great. Now every elected official should be forced by law to do the same.
