The Office of Government Ethics has declined to certify the financial disclosure report of Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, according to a new filing. The 2018 annual filing wasn't certified because, it says, Ross said he did not hold BankUnited stock while the transaction report from Oct. 31, 2018, demonstrated that he did. The issue over Ross's stake in BankUnited had previously been brought to light by the Center for Public Integrity. In a statement late Tuesday, Ross said he had thought the shares had been sold off in 2017, and directed them to be sold in 2018 to correct the error after learning he still held them. "While I am disappointed that my report was not certified, I remain committed to complying with my ethics agreement and adhering to the guidance of Commerce ethics officials," he said in the statement. The statement also said that the Ross stake was worth $3,700, or 100 shares in total.
