Mullen has proposed to raise taxes on the rich, who made so much money during the past decade. Yet Mullen’s tax records show heavy investment in business during that time and large profits; so Mullen’s proposal does not deserve our consideration. The flawed reasoning in the argument above is most similar to the flawed reasoning in which one of the following? (A) Do not vote for Smith’s proposed legislation to subsidize child care for working parents; Smith is a working parent. (B) Do not put any credence in Dr. Han’s recent proposal to ban smoking in all public places; Dr. Han is a heavy smoker. (C) The previous witness’s testimony ought to be ignored; he has been convicted of both forgery and mail fraud. (D) Board member Timm’s proposal to raise the salaries of the company’s middle managers does not deserve to be considered; Timm’s daughter is a middle manager at the company’s headquarters. (E) Dr. Wasow’s analysis of the design of this bridge should not be taken seriously; after all, Dr. Wasow has previously only designed factory buildings.

As I've understood, Mullen is himself rich and he is proposing new taxes to be payed by rich people. Therefore, Mullen's proposal will harm himself financially. And somehow Mullen's judgment shouldn't be trusted
I find (B) to be most similar to the reasoning given in stimulus. Here we have heavy smoker proposing to ban smoking (therefore harming himself in some way)
