Thanks for keeping me on my toes, I'm sorry I missed the quote in your post:
The Nation recently reported that the Romney family personally
profited by at least $15.3 million from the auto loans of 2009 through his investment in the Delphi Corp. auto parts company. Yet Romney's June 1,
2012, Public Financial Disclosure Report to the Office of Government Ethics did not reveal this windfall because he did not disclose the underlying
holdings of his private equity and limited partnership funds.
It seemed as though I had missed something significant so I looked up "Public
Financial Disclosure Form." A White House website led me to Obama's, and in the margin, sure enough, it had instructions for nominees for the
Presidency and others.
It looks like Romney is off the hook, at least legally, because the reporting period for him would only go back a calendar year (or two, depending on
the portion of the form involved), that is through all of 2010. Yep, he didn't disclose the underlying holdings, because he didn't have to.
It could be that I'm missing out on the UAW's point, though. Maybe there is a legitimate complaint somewhere. Not sure that it will have any effect
on the voters.
