Secretary Pate statement on erroneous AP story


DES MOINES – Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate released the following statement today in response to a false story from the Associated Press:

"A story from the Associated Press today claims that I did not disclose a real estate holding to the Iowa Campaign Ethics and Disclosure Board. This is absolutely false and anyone who views the form I submitted can see that I included commercial and residential real estate holdings as sources of income. The form is filled out correctly and this entire story is a false hit piece, written by a biased reporter with a partisan agenda.

After visiting with the Campaign Ethics and Disclosure Board today, I am confident my financial disclosure statement is accurate."

A full copy of Secretary Pate's disclosure form can be found here. The relevant section is Part C, 4.
