The campaign treasurer for Rep. Bill Owens has written the Federal Election Commission to explain previous error-riddled reports.
The full letter can be found here.
Basically, due to bookkeeping errors, some contributions were dated incorrectly, some had the incorrect contribution amounts, some were duplicate and some weren't filed at all.
"During a review of its reports, the Committee discovered some mistakes in the filings prepared by its previous vendor and subsequently undertook a complete review of its 2009 and 2010 reports," Theodore Kowalczyk writes.
The committee filed an "omnibus" set of amendments in July to previous disclosure forms that clears up any confusion.
