Buffett's claims about tax rates unproven

In your editorial regarding the proposed tax increase for high-earners ("The Buffett Rule backlash," April 12)," you state that Warren Buffett's secretarial staff "were shown to pay a higher percentage of their income to the tax man than their billionaire boss."

However, to the best of my knowledge, neither Mr. Buffett's personal secretary nor anyone else from his company have publicly presented their personal tax returns to validate that information.

To see this unverified claim in a column is understandable. To see it as a part of an editorial is preposterous.
