Alaska agency says Stevens rival also failed to disclose assets

Anchorage Daily NewsSeptember 15, 2008 

The Alaska Public Offices Commission staff is recommending that Anchorage Mayor and Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Mark Begich pay a fine of $1,420 for failing to list items on his state financial disclosure statement.

The recommendation, which now will be considered by the full commission, is the result of a complaint by Alaska Republican Party spokesman McHugh Pierre this summer. The essence of the complaint: That Begich's state disclosure form, which he's required to file as mayor, failed to list some assets and income that he included on the federal form he filed as a Senate candidate.

APOC's report is available here.
