Mitt Romney, the Republican candidate for governor, acknowledged today that he filed tax returns in 1999 and 2000 saying he was a part-time resident or nonresident of Massachusetts, while he lived full time in Utah running the Winter Olympics.
The Massachusetts Constitution requires a candidate for governor to have lived in the state for seven consecutive years before running, and Mr. Romney's admission raised new questions about his candidacy. On Wednesday, he acknowledged saving $54,000 in taxes by claiming his multimillion dollar Utah house as his primary residence.
