* Berkley’s staff wouldn’t provide her tax returns, but provided them for a local newspaper story on her 2011 tax returns, filed in 2012. The article contained the relevant information, so she was considered as having responded.

** Cicilline didn’t provide tax returns but allowed a McClatchy surrogate to review them in his district office in Providence.

*** Lugar releases a detailed financial statement annually, which was sent recently to McClatchy, that includes most of his relevant tax data, so he was treated as having responded.


Rep. Gary Ackerman, D-N.Y.

Rep. Corrine Brown, D-Fla.

Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo.

Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C

Rep. Renee Ellmers, R-N.C.

Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C.

Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C.

Sen. Daniel Akaka, D-Hawaii

Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill.*

Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii

Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev.

Sen. Jim Risch, R-Idaho

Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va.


Democrats: 11

Republicans: 8

* Durbin’s office said he’d release them in mid-June, then said the same for mid-July, then didn’t after repeated follow-ups. He told McClatchy he would attach his tax returns to his annual financial disclosure, which he has done in past years.

** Feinstein’s office contacted McClatchy and said it would share the tax returns, then didn’t, even after repeated follow-ups.

But before lacing up her boots, Ernst has recorded the Republicans’ national radio address.

This photo taken June 30, 2014 shows North Carolina Republican Congressional candidate David Rouzer, right, talking with campaign aide Tyler Foote in Raleigh, N.C. Rouzer is favored to win the House seat that North Carolina Democrat Mike McIntyre is surrendering after 18 years. Democrats long have claimed that Republicans abused their legislative powers to elect a disproportionate number of U.S. House members. A court in Florida is lending credence to their complaint, and North Carolina Democrats are fighting a GOP-drawn map in state court. The battles are shining a new light on the fiercely partisan practice of gerrymandering, in which state officials draw congressional districts to help their party. Both parties have done it for decades, but Republicans refined the practice in 2011, a year after they won control of numerous state governments preparing to redraw congressional maps based on the 2010 census. It’s one reason Republicans hold a solid House majority even though Americans cast 1.4 million more votes for Democratic House candidates than for GOP House candidates in 2012.

    Democrats have long claimed that Republicans abused their legislative powers to elect a disproportionate number of U.S. House members. Now a Florida court is lending credence to their complaint.
