Some investments listed in Mitt and Ann Romney's 2010 tax returns including a now-closed Swiss bank account and other funds located overseas were not explicitly disclosed in the personal financial statement the GOP presidential hopeful filed in August as part of his White House bid.
The Romney campaign described the discrepancies as "trivial" but acknowledged Thursday afternoon that they are undergoing an internal review of how the investments were reported and will make "some minor technical amendments" to Romney's financial disclosure that will not alter the overall picture of his finances....
Among the assets omitted is a Swiss bank account in Ann Romney's blind trust that campaign officials said held $3 million of the couple's money until it was closed in 2010....

such close attention to detail the press has now. say, didn’t tony rezko sell obama an adjascent plot next to his existing home for a discount?
You mean Romney lied.....?????
Shocked I tell you....! Shocked I am....!
With all the attacks Romney is perpetrating on Newt, what makes him think he’ll make it out ‘unscathed’?
The attacks on him haven’t even begun yet.
Ehhh... it was just a “trivial” $3,000,000. I mean, he probably just thought he’d left the money in his other pants, or something....
Frankly, I think these discrepancies are probably inadvertent. But the question I’d like someone to ask Romney is: “Why are you putting your money is foreign banks? Aren’t U.S. Banks good enough for you? If you are serious about stopping the overseas ouutsourcing of jobs, why are you outsourcing your banking business to foreign firms?”
lol....!! He’s one sorry piece of crap...!!
“were not explicitly disclosed”
In other words he lied. Well actually, creating a false document is a forgery.... but he now wants to clean it up.
They call it venture captialism...!!!!
Hide ur moeny and see how much adventure you can get out of it before getting caught...!!!
Misplacing a politicially disadvantageous $3 million inadvertently? Really? Do you realize that people with that much money actually have entire offices--called family offices--dedicated to managing their accounts, that these people do it professionally and keep all kinds of records of their work? This isn't like you and me misplacing a $20 in the trunk of our Toyota.
There is zero probability this was inadvertent. In fact, some physicists argue that in certain cases negative probabilities are possible. If they're right, there is less than zero probability this was inadvertent.
