Oh the bane of paperwork!

State Sen. Steven Horsford, D-Las Vegas, who is running to represent Nevada’s newest congressional district, seems to have overlooked filing his federal personal financial disclosure form.

Congressional candidates are required to detail their personal finances for the U.S. House Ethics Committee within 30 days of raising more than $5,000 for their campaign. Horsford reached that threshold in October last year but so far hasn’t filed the form.

“This was an internal mistake, but of course Sen. Horsford is a strong believer in transparency and it will be filed soon,” said his campaign manager Geoff Mackler in an email.

Horsford did make the deadline for his 2011 state financial disclosure.

The federal form, however, is much more detailed, requiring candidates to describe the amount of income from employment, property and other assets.
