Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, on his 2011 financial disclosure form, omitted the fact that a Romney trust derived income from a Swiss bank account.
"An amendment is being filed to address this minor discrepancy," an unnamed campaign official told ABC News
In a subsequent statement, campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul attempted to downplay the omission.
“The inescapable fact is that by releasing over 600 pages of information regarding his finances, Mitt Romney is clearly coming down on the side of disclosure," Saul said. "Any document with this level of complexity and detail is bound to have a few trivial inadvertent issues. We are in the process of putting together some minor technical amendments, which will not alter the overall picture of Gov. and Mrs. Romney's finances, as disclosed in August."
According to ABC News, the campaign had earlier maintained it was not necessary to disclose the Swiss account because it had been shuttered by Romney’s money manager in early 2010. The Romneys had $3 million in an account with the Swiss bank, UBS, a discovery that came after Romney released his 2010 tax returns on Tuesday, the report states.
