  •  Rove should have "solemnly sworn... (none)
    (and had notarized) to the best of his knowledge and belief that the foregoing information is true and correct" on a 'Financial Disclosure and Conflict of Interest Report' (that's what they're called in Texas... so, I'm sure he's seen it; surely executive branch has similiar form or one even more extensive).

    It would reveal info on:  Rove; his spouse; his and her dependent children.
    Info such as:
    -employment or received compensation (or other monetary benefit) from any business entity (other than executive branch) during the last calendar year;
    -whether they served as an officer or as a member of the governing board in the capacity of a director, advisory director or trustee in a corporation (both for-profit and not-for-profit);
    -partnerships, limited partnerships, proprietorships, or other unincorporated business entity for which either he, his spouse, or dependent child is a partner, joint venturer, or owner;
    - gifts received over $250 to Rove, his spouse, their dependent children including gifts from their parents to them or from their parents to their dependent children.
    -Rove or spouse's: ownership of 5% or more interest, whether voting or nonvoting; entitlement to 5% or more of the profits, proceeds, or capital gains; receiving 5% or more of their total income.

    If any of the entities above have any business relationship,to the best of his knowledge, to the (United States of America).

    This report has to be filled out every calendar year for the proceeding calendar year.
    Passive income such as c/d's stock dividends, or rental property not included.

    Would be interesting to see what Rove has put down on such a form, since he will be executing contracts on our behalf and will be 'exercising discretion with regards to the awarding of contracts or other financial transactions.'

    A FOIA request would be most illuminating.
