Ward files new financial disclosure

Here’s a news item from the Associated Press:  BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Republican U.S. House hopeful Vaughn Ward filed a new financial disclosure with the U.S. House detailing about $110,000 worth of family assets he hadn’t reported last year. U.S. House candidates and members must disclose details about most assets, including from spouses, worth more than $1,000. In Ward’s 2009 disclosure, he listed property in Cascade and a home in Virginia. But he omitted some assets, including those of his wife, Kirsten, saying he believed they were exempt. In Monday’s new report, he detailed her $78,840 Fidelity 401K; stock in her employer, Fannie Mae, worth less than $1,000; and his $31,189 Thrift 401K from his work at the Central Intelligence Agency. Ward’s spokesman, Ryan O’Barto, said lawyers advised him the CIA account is exempt from disclosure, but the campaign reported it in the interest of transparency.
