Atlanta, Georgia (AP) --
Republican gubernatorial nominee Nathan Deal is facing more questions about his finances now that a federal judge has reopened a bankruptcy filing for his daughter and son-in-law.
Deal and his wife Sandra guaranteed more than $2 million in
loans for Wilder Outdoors, a failed sporting goods store started by
the former congressman's daughter and her husband. Although Deal
listed himself in congressional disclosure forms as a partner or as
a 50 percent investor in Wilder Outdoors, Deal's name did not
appear on the 2009 bankruptcy filing.
Deal's campaign accountant says the omission was a mistake by
Deal's son-in-law, who filed the bankruptcy. The bankruptcy
reopening, first reported by The Fulton Daily Report, could leave
Deal on the hook for more debt.
