STEPHANOPOULOS: You did bring up the tax returns. How many years of tax returns did you provide to the Romney campaign?
PAWLENTY: Well, I don’t know the exact number, George, but I — you know, there were several years, I believe.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Several years. So more than two?
PAWLENTY: Well, we don’t get into the details of the vetting process, but I — I gave them a bunch of tax returns. I don’t remember the exact number of years.

- Context: During its vetting process to find a running mate, the Romney campaign required all potential candidate to submit many years worth of tax returns. During this interview, a misstep by Pawlenty once again brings to the forefront the issue of Romney’s own tax returns, which he refuses to release to the American public.
