    Reverse course.

    Chicago mayoral candidate Carol Moseley Braun said Monday night she'll release her tax returns before the Feb. 22 mayoral election.

    "Because I don't want to," was how the former U.S. senator and ambassador answered earlier in the day as to why she was refusing to release them.

    She changed that position Monday night in an interview with WFLD-TV.

    In the evening interview, Moseley Braun called her earlier comments a "misstatement," and said she was being too flippant at
    the time.

    "Let me assure everybody that my taxes will be delivered tomorrow. I am committed to transparency in government," she said.

    The other major candidates, former Chicago School Board president Gery Chico, City Clerk Miguel del Valle, and former White
    House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, have all released their tax returns.
