A state panel has ruled Nebraska Attorney General, Jon Bruning, violated a public disclosure law when he failed to report his ownership stake in a $675,000 lake home. The Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Commission approved a settlement last week with the Republican attorney general, who could have faced a $2,000 fine, but the commission voted 8-0 not to assess a penalty. Chief Deputy Attorney General David Cookson says it was an accidental, technical violation. He says the home switched hands for a few months in 2009, when it was being refinanced. Cookson says Bruning filed an amended disclosure form to correct the error. The commission also dismissed three other charges, including claims that Bruning failed to disclose his ownership in 2008 and 2010.
