Farmer fails to file annual financial disclosure

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Executive Branch Ethics Commission
hasn't received a financial disclosure form from former agriculture
Commissioner Richie Farmer that covers his last year in office.

Commission general counsel Katie Gabhart told the Lexington
Herald-Leader ( that information about
Farmer's failure to file the paperwork by the April 16 deadline
would be presented to the panel during its May 14 meeting.

Gabhart said the commission would also receive information
during the meeting about results from a state audit that showed
Farmer had accepted expensive gifts and didn't report them.

Farmer's attorney, Guthrie True of Frankfort, called it an
"oversight" that Farmer missed the deadline.

The newspaper reports all other Kentucky constitutional officers
filed their forms on time.
