Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) has failed to properly disclose his financial dealings as both a candidate and a congressman, the Houston Chronicle reported on 11/24. A continuing investigation of the representative's campaign finances shows that Stockman has failed to file federally required expense documents since his 2012 campaign; those that he did file were months late and only prompted more questions.
