Campaign 2012

Obama Video: 'Do You Have an Offshore Bank Account?'


President Obama’s campaign continues to hammer Mitt Romney on his finances, this time posting a new web video released on Thursday that includes man-on-the-street interviews asking the question: “Do you have an offshore bank account?”


“I don’t have a Swiss bank account,” says one woman. “I don’t have an account in the Caymans.”

She adds: “I don’t have a problem with people making tons of money, but there are questions that are raised by ‘Why are you keeping your money offshore?’”

The Obama campaign is seizing on a report in Vanity Fair that investigated Romney’s finances, at the same time attacking the former Massachusetts governor over his tenure at private equity firm Bain Capital.


In the video, a middle-aged man asks: “I don’t have an overseas bank account, and I don’t think our next president should have one either.”
