Devin Nunes, TJ Cox delay financial reports amid accusations they didn’t disclose businesses

By: Kate Irby, McClatchy Washington Bureau, May 15, 2019

California Congressmen Devin Nunes and TJ Cox have filed requests for extensions on their mandatory financial disclosure forms, which were due Wednesday.

Both San Joaquin Valley congressmen have faced recent questions from critics alleging they neglected to include some of their business interests on those forms. The 90-day extension means their forms are now not due until Aug. 13.

The nonprofit advocacy group Campaign for Accountability in July filed a complaint against Nunes alleging he failed to disclose business interests.

The group said records showed Nunes had a stake in Vidonia LLC, a California financial holding company active between 2006 and 2009, but that he failed to disclose it on any financial disclosure forms.

Campaign for Accountability also called into question the finances Nunes listed, suggesting that he was either not disclosing the correct amounts he was making or had been given special deals on investments into wineries, a gift he would also have to disclose.

There has been no update to that ethics complaint from a the Office of Congressional Ethics.
