Opponents call for Coats disclosures

April 27, 2010

The Indiana Democratic Party and members of the Indiana Republican Party are still calling on Republican Senatorial candidate Dan Coats to release his personal financial disclosure statement. The paperwork identifies income, assets, liabilities, gifts and travel-related reimbursements. Candidates also must disclose any positions they hold with non-governmental organizations, including lobbying groups. The forms were due April 4. A Coats campaign spokesperson said his forms will be released soon. Opponents accuse the former U.S. Senator of trying to hide his connections to powerful lobbyists.
