Casey slipped on listing assets, Senate unit says

Central Intelligence Director William J. Casey, apparently unintentionally, failed to list more than a dozen assets worth $200,000 and liabilities of twice that amount on financial-disclosure reports, the federal Ethics Office said.

Mr. Casey, whose financial activities are being investigated by a Senate panel, said the failure to report some holdings was inadvertent and that he is changing his financial disclosures.

The Ethics Office director, accepting Casey's amendments, said there was no evidence the omission was intentional. The 1978 Ethics in Government Act, requires federal officials and nominees for federal positions to report holdings of more than $1,000.
