New Disclosures Show Wilson Deep in Debt

Talk about bad timing.

Jonathan Allen reports newly-amended financial disclosure forms show that Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) -- who heckled President Obama last night -- is heavily leveraged and his debts may even exceed his assets. The new filings reveal for the first time hundreds of thousands of dollars in previously unreported loans from federal credit unions and banks.

A Wilson aide did not reply to e-mailed requests for information, and phone lines to Wilson's office were jammed.

Meanwhile, Wilson's Democratic opponent in next year's election has pulled in over $400,000 in new campaign contributions since last night.
