Several hundred people gathered on the Minnesota State Capitol steps Saturday to call for sterner oversight of political financing and conflicts of interest. Many carried signs demanding that President Donald Trump release his tax returns and divest of his business holdings.
The three-hour “Show Us the Money” Tax March Minnesota was one of about 130 such events held nationwide, including a large one in Washington, D.C. Although the event was billed as nonpartisan, it featured appearances by several DFL leaders, including U.S. Rep. Betty McCollum, D-Minn., state Rep. Ilhan Omar, DFL-Minneapolis, and St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman. Richard Painter, a University of Minnesota law professor and former chief White House ethics lawyer for President George W. Bush, also spoke.
