Akin failed to report state pension

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri congressman Todd Akin has amended a decade's worth of federal financial reports to add nearly $130,000 in state pension income that he received over that time.

Akin's office provided The Associated Press with a copy of the updated personal financial disclosure reports Thursday after being asked why he had not listed his retirement benefits. Akin's office released a letter dated Tuesday to the House Ethics Committee in which the Republican congressman described the lack of information about his pension payments as an "unintentional oversight."

Akin receives a state pension because he previously served in the Missouri House. He is running this year against Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill.

McCaskill also receives a state pension from her time as a Missouri legislator and auditor.
