Arizona Rep. Mark Finchem failed for years to follow state laws requiring elected officials to report their sources of income and business ties.

Finchem did not disclose nearly $2,000 a month in pension benefits and a few businesses in which he was involved from the time he took office in 2015 until January,  financial records show.

The four-term Republican lawmaker from Oro Valley reported his longtime public safety pension for the first time in seven years after launching his bid to become Arizona’s next secretary of state.

Finchem, who is endorsed by former President Donald Trump, was a prominent member of the “Stop the Steal” movement and has sought to overturn Arizona’s 2020 presidential election results.

If elected, Finchem would be in charge of overseeing the financial disclosures and campaign contribution reports required of every elected state official.

He declined to comment on the missing data in the reports, which he had avowed were “true and correct” and signed under penalty of perjury.
