Show and Tell or No Ballot Line

Not that he's going to win any of these states anyway, but it should produce some nasty tweets.

A pair of Maryland Democrats on Tuesday announced they would introduce a bill mandating the release of five years of tax returns, mirroring similar proposals in New YorkMassachusettsCalifornia and Maine.

From the NY link:

State Sen. Brad Hoylman (D) will introduce the Tax Returns Uniformly Made Public Act — the TRUMP Act — when New York’s legislature convenes next year. The bill would require candidates to submit five years’ worth of federal taxes with New York’s state Board of Elections 50 days prior to a general election.

New York’s electoral college members would be prohibited from voting for any candidate who did not file their tax returns. Any candidate who refuses to submit the returns would be barred from the state’s ballot. 

Nice legislating senator and great sense of humor, too.
