Democrat Representative Matt Cartwright of Pennsylvania recently left off a million-dollar lake home and a price plane from his financial disclosures. A big oops for a man who is a fighter for the working people.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
Cartwright, who represents Pennsylvania’s toss-up Eighth Congressional District, has for years omitted from his financial disclosures a limited liability company that owns his $180,000 private plane as well as a trust that holds a Lake George, N.Y., lake home valued at $1.35 million.
Neither the LLC, Archer Partners, nor the trust, the Hague Personal Residence Trust, have appeared on any of the annual disclosures Cartwright has filed since his election in 2012.
Members of Congress, political candidates, and high-level government employees are required to file annual financial disclosures to make public information that includes sources of income and assets. Rules mandate they divulge “information concerning each asset held in a trust” in which the politician, spouse, or a dependent child has a beneficial interest.
Contacted by the Washington Free Beacon, a spokesman for Cartwright said the congressman would be filing his new annual disclosure, which now shows assets valued between $100,000 and $250,000 in Archer Partners LLC and between $250,000 and $500,000 in the Hague Personal Residence Trust, of which Cartwright is a part-owner. The congressman also amended disclosures from prior years to include the LLC and trust.
Jim Bognet, a Republican and former member of the Trump administration is challenging Cartwright in the November 3rd election.
