Stockman Mum on Holes in His Financial Disclosure

Rep. Steve Stockman’s office has yet to comment on the Houston Chronicle’s 1,897-word piece accusing the Texas Republican of filing insufficient financial disclosure forms and stating income from a company, “Presidential Trust,” with unclear revenue streams.

While Stockman’s Twitter feed has been active, the lawmaker and his spokesmen have yet to return calls for comment from CQ Roll Call.

Stockman claims to work in “nonprofit organization management” on his LinkedIn page, but according to the Houston Chronicle, there is no record of Presidential Trust or Presidential Trust Marketing registered as a nonprofit entity.

Stockman claimed income of $200,000 in 2012 from Presidential Trust Marketing. Stockman’s wife, Patti, is a records officer at NASA who made $115,000 in 2012.

Roll Call’s Political MoneyLine blog has some more information on Stockman’s financial records.

    Since similar prizes are rewarded for similar achievements in a free country, increasing efficiency naturally accompanies free markets.

    Since science traces today’s events to yesterday, it can lead to the notion that our actions are not of our own control or responsibility.
