Why LinkedIn co-founder is trying to get Trump to release his taxes
Sep 25, 2016 7:15 AM - These days in Silicon Valley, Democratic supporters among the tech cognoscenti seem to be as common as hoodie-wearing twentysomethings with dreams of being the next Mark Zuckerberg. A number of high-profile tech leaders signed on to a June letter endorsing Hillary Clinton, and 150 others wrote an open letter saying a Donald Trump presidency would be a "disaster for innovation." Yet some are taking a more creative approach at expressing their views. In recent weeks, Reid Hoffman, the co-founder and executive chairman of LinkedIn, has rolled out two attempts designed to -- if not directly help Clinton -- try and lure Donald Trump to release his tax returns and spotlight the absurdities of this year's election campaign.
