Whoops!

California Democratic Rep. Lois Capps has been caught failing to report income to the U.S. House of Representatives again – this time for leaving more than half a million dollars off her required congressional disclosure forms.

"From 1998 through 2006," Chris Meagher of the Santa Barbara Independent newspaper reported, "Capps — in filings with the Legislative Resource Center, home to all public disclosure information filed by members of the House of Representatives — didn't include income from two pensions she received, one from the State Teachers Retirement System and the Regents of the University of California."
