Mitt Romney is being forced to revise his federal ethics forms after it was
pointed out that he had omitted several offshore accounts held in
Switzerland, Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Luxembourg and Ireland.
Interest from the accounts was listed on Romney¹s tax return which he
released on Tuesday, but was missing from his financial disclosure forms
that he filed with the Federal Election Commission last summer.
The former Massachusetts governor’s campaign admitted what it described as “trivial” and “a minor discrepancy” and said the disclosure would be
amended, reported the Los Angeles Times .
The campaign said it was making “some minor technical amendments” to the
multi-millionaire’s financial disclosure. It said the changes will not alter
the overall picture of his finances.
The Times says it discovered at least 23 funds and partnerships that were
listed on Romney’s tax returns that were not included in his disclosure
filings. Half of them were held in what the paper called “low-tax foreign
countries such as Bermuda, the Cayman Islands and Luxembourg.”
