Massachusetts Candidate Confirms Utah As Residence

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.

Note the date. Why don't we have as good a press corps as we had in 2002 ?

this is a misleadingly incomplete post.
The MA State Election Comission decided, in the end, that MR was a MA resident, for electoral purpoises.

I don't know what they were thinking, but given the extent to which the dem party controls MA politics, it had to be a reasonable decision
