The Republican Governors Association (RGA) released a new ad attacking the Democratic nominee for governor of Colorado, Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO), for not paying his taxes on Thursday.

The ad, “Caught,” highlighted an exchange between Polis and CBS Denver reporter Shaun Boyd during a recent Democratic debate in which Boyd pressed Polis on his personal taxes.

“Multi-millionaire Jared Polis got caught,” the ad’s narrator said.

The next clip shows Boyd saying, “For five years, though, before you entered Congress, you paid no federal income tax.”

“Uh-oh,” the ad’s narrator interjected.

“And have used onshore and offshore Cayman Island accounts to avoid paying taxes,” Boyd added.

“I think that’s, you know, completely appropriate,” Polis responded.

“Jared Polis didn’t pay income taxes, but he wants to raise yours. Higher income taxes, higher energy taxes. High taxes on everyone,” the ad’s narrator said. “Except maybe… Jared Polis.”

“Jared Polis doesn’t want to pay his fair share in taxes, but wants to force Colorado families to shoulder a higher tax burden,” RGA Communications Director Jon Thompson said in a statement. “Jared Polis was caught not paying federal income taxes for five years, was caught using onshore and offshore Cayman Island accounts to avoid paying taxes, and was caught stating that all of it was ‘completely appropriate.’ Polis is just another typical do-as-I-say, not-as-I-do politician who can’t be trusted to lead Colorado forward.”
