Rule 102-5-09 | Financial disclosure statement attachments.
(A) The ethics law requires that a financial disclosure statement must be complete at the time it is filed. A filer may submit additional information and request that the commission attach the information to the filer's statement. The commission will acknowledge receipt of the additional information.
(B) Upon receipt of additional information forwarded by the filer, the commission, or as otherwise delegated to the executive director, will determine whether the information should be attached to the filer's financial disclosure statement. During the course of the determination, the additional information will be kept confidential in accordance with section 102.06 of the Revised Code.
(C) In determining whether the information submitted in accordance with this rule should be attached to a filer's financial disclosure statement, the executive director and/or the commission will consider whether the facts demonstrate that, at the time the original filing was made, the filer inadvertently excluded the information submitted in accordance with this rule, or knowingly failed to provide the information required by sections 102.02 and 102.022 of the Revised Code, or knowingly filed a false statement.
(D) In determining whether good cause to allow the attachment has been shown, the executive director and/or the commission will take into consideration whether the statement is material to a complaint or charge.
(E) If the executive director and/or the commission determine that the information submitted in accordance with this rule should be attached to a filer's financial disclosure statement, the information submitted will be attached to the original filing and will be maintained and retained in the manner described in rule 102-5-02 of the Administrative Code.
