Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.) plans to release 10 years of his tax returns on Friday morning, pressuring his Republican counterpart, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, to do the same, Politico has learned.

The move is part of a fresh aggressiveness from Barack Obama‘s campaign, which wants to discredit the new posture by John McCain as the candidate of real change.

Disclosure, or transparency, is a big way for a candidate to make that case during a campaign.

News reports from Alaska have said that Palin collected per diem travel payments even when she was at home, and the Obama-Biden campaign wants reporters to see if she paid taxes on it. Source Article
