Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bill White is releasing his tax returns for the years he served as Houston mayor.
Republican Gov. Rick Perry has been pounding White for weeks for
not giving more detail about his income and business relationships.
The returns released Tuesday show White made more than $1 million a
year during his tenure as mayor of the state's largest city, from
White reported $4.6 million in adjusted gross income in
2005, the highest earnings in the six-year period. His lowest income came in 2009, when White reported $660,000 in income.
White has acknowledged that he made money off one of the private companies he had enlisted for help during Hurricane Rita. The revelation comes as White, the Democratic candidate for Texas governor, released tax returns dating back to 2004, when he took the reins at Houston City Hall.
