Sen. Pat Roberts’ address confusion embedded in paperwork

Sen. Pat Roberts’ struggle with his actual home address continues to bedevil his campaign.

The latest evidence of the paperwork tangle might be found in his latest personal financial disclosure, filed in August of this year.

Senate disclosure rules require filers to list real estate holdings. Roberts lists homes or condos in Alexandria, Va., Maryland, and Dodge City, Kan. as rental properties.

But Senate rules say a filer need not disclose the value of his or her “primary residence.”

Roberts’ suburban Virginia home is not listed on the disclosure, strongly suggesting the Republican considers it his primary residence.

Incidentally, Greg Orman’s disclosure does not list his primary residence.
