(Tulsa-AP) -- A Second District congressional candidate has an apology and an explanation for submitting a financial disclosure form late. Republican Steve Money says the form was misplaced during an office move. Money says he found the report packed in a box. He sent the form and a $200 late fee to the clerk of the U-S House of Representatives.

Candidates must disclose their income, debts and investments once their campaigns raise or spend $5,000 dollars. The Federal Election Commission has asked for an explanation of the sources for two loans Money reported last year. One loan was for $130,000 -- which was listed as having been paid. The other loan was for $150,000. Money says he used personal funds for the loans which would demonstrate viability but could be easily repaid.
