The Associated Press is promising more on this later today:
Republican gubernatorial nominee Nathan Deal is facing more questions about his finances now that a federal judge has reopened a bankruptcy filing for his daughter and son-in-law.
Deal and his wife Sandra guaranteed more than $2 million in loans for Wilder Outdoors, a failed sporting goods store started by the former congressman’s daughter and her husband. Although Deal listed himself in congressional disclosure forms as a partner or as a 50 percent investor in Wilder Outdoors, Deal’s name did not appear on the 2009 bankruptcy filing.
Deal’s campaign accountant says the omission was a mistake by Deal’s son-in-law, who filed the bankruptcy. The bankruptcy reopening, first reported by The Fulton Daily Report, could leave Deal on the hook for more debt.
