-- Proverbs 11:25
Republican Joe Miller has filed his financial disclosure forms with the Senate. The documents, which detail the finances and potential conflicts of all senators and Senate candidates and are a requirement of both, were turned into the Senate public records office Thursday afternoon.
Miller was supposed to turn his form in sometime in April, when he had more than $5,000 in campaign donations in his campaign account. He never turned one in, though – an omission that the campaign said was unintentional. However, both Sen. Lisa Murkowski and Democrat Scott McAdams filed their forms. There's more information here about what's in their disclosures.
He could face fines for turning the disclosure form in late; no one with the Senate Ethics office was available for comment Thursday. However, there's a $200 penalty for filing even one month past the due date and failing to file the disclosure forms entirely can result in a fine of up to $50,000.
Miller also has a substantial amount of credit card debt, including between $35,003 and $80,000 on three separate charge accounts: two cards charging 10.24 percent interest with Bank of America and one zero percent interest loan with USAA Federal Savings Bank.
