More FYI: The LDS Church would have

records showing how much Romney gave to the church for the years in question but I don't believe it would have copies of Romney's tax returns. The tithe that a member pays -- the 10 percent -- is based on whatever that member deems fair, as I understand it. There is no set rule stating that a member must pay 10 percent of gross income, or net income, or trust income that goes directly to a third party by check from the trust, or whatever, etc. Some members probably give 10 percent of their gross and others 10 percent of their net. Others might give 10 percent of what's left after deductions and after every possible loophole has been utilized. Which category might Romney fall into? Just a thought, but anyone curious enough and persistent enough and capable enough might want to do some digging.

FYI: Mormons are encouraged to

give more than 10 percent. Members can specify how their contributions over 10 percent are to be used; for example, for humanitarian aid, temple construction, etc.

And as for Harry Reid: Give 'em Hell, Harry! This Mormon vs. Mormon action must be having an impact on LDS leadership. Not that I would want any Mormon heads to explode or anything, but I relish picturing a little chaos and confusion occurring in Mormon VIP circles.
