Deal Amends Financial Disclosure

Nathan Deal has again amended his financial disclosure filed with the state - the second time in seven days the Republican gubernatorial candidate has made changes to the required report.

Deal's campaign also said Thursday the former congressman will liquidate his IRA, now worth about $750,000, to help pay down a $2.3 million debt he is facing related to his daughter and son-in-law's failed sporting goods venture.

Deal's campaign amended their state report one week ago after The Associated Press raised questions about $2.85 million in business loans he had failed to disclose.

Deal's campaign said Thursday they were amending the report after an accountant studied their finances. The new report adds Deal's business property as an asset - which helped boost his bottom line in 2009 to $2.8 million.
