Romney To Make Corrections To Personal Financial Statements Over Discrepancies With Tax Returns
The LA Times reports that Mitt Romney’s campaign failed to disclose information that should have been made public as part of his personal financial statements made as part of his bid for the White House. The omissions came to light because there was a discrepancy between Romney’s tax returns, released this week, and his disclosures released last August. The Romney campaign says it is conducting a review of the situation.
From the story:
Some investments listed in Mitt and Ann Romney’s 2010 tax returns – including a now-closed Swiss bank account and funds located in overseas tax havens – were not explicitly disclosed in the personal financial statement the GOP presidential hopeful filed last August as part of his White House bid.
The Romney campaign described the discrepancies as “trivial” but acknowledged Thursday afternoon that they are undergoing an internal review of how the investments were reported and will make “some minor technical amendments” to Romney’s financial disclosure that will not alter the overall picture of his finances.
The LA Times' review showed 23 funds and partnerships that were not listed on the original disclosures, 11 of which were based in the Cayman Islands, Bermuda, and Luxembourg. Several of them were also connected to Bain Capital.
Update: NBC confirms Romney will be revising his disclosures from the summer.
