The watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) sent a letter to the Office of Government Ethics asking them to refer Mitt Romney to the Justice Department for an investigation into the inaccurate personal finance disclosure form he filed.
“Mr. Romney says the errors are minor, but then again he also claims earning $374,000 in speaking fees isn’t much money,” CREW Executive Director Melanie Sloan said in a statement. “In reality, filing an inaccurate disclosure form can be a criminal offense. As a result, the Office of Government Ethics should forward the matter on to the Department of Justice to determine whether Mr. Romney deliberately withheld information.”
