Akin failed to report 10 years of Missouri state pension payments [View all]

Congressman Todd Akin failed to report almost $130,000 in Missouri legislative pension income over the past 10 years on his congressional financial disclosure report, his office acknowledged this morning.

“This was an unintentional oversight and I regret any inconvenience this may cause,” Akin wrote in a letter to the House Ethics committee this week.

The acknowledgment came after a Post-Dispatch inquiry into why Akin showed no Missouri pension payments on the congressional form.

Asked if the discovery came in response the newspaper’s questions, Akin spokesman Steve Taylor said only that it was the result “an inquiry.”

Akin, whose Republican Senate campaign has been rocked by his August comments about “legitimate rape” and pregnancy, has made personal financial issues a centerpiece in his challenge of Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo.

It's not the first time Akin has had to amend his congressional disclosure report after failing to disclose assets. Last year, he amended nearly a decade’s worth of personal financial disclosure forms, reporting previously undisclosed property assets for 2010 worth a minimum of $355,000 after a Post-Dispatch inquiry.
