Voters will have to wait till the February mayoral election is over to see her tax returns.

Chicago mayoral candidate Carol Moseley Braun says she won't release her tax returns until after the February 22 election is over. So far Braun is the only major candidate who hasn't made her tax returns public.

At a campaign event yesterday Braun made it clear to reporters why she has no intention of making them available.
“Because I don't want to," she said.
Rahm Emanuel, Gery Chico, and Miguel Del Valle have already made their returns public even though it's not required of candidates. They do have to provide a statement of economic interest in order to get on the ballot.
