Will there be a Prop 8 bombshell hidden in Romney's tax returns?

Good piece from Scott Wooledge on Daily Kos. Revealing that Romney gave Burger King
stock worth $1.9 million to Mormon Church as well as from Domino's, DDI, Marquee Holdings and more.   Will there be a Prop 8 bombshell hidden in Romney's tax returns?
