Jeezus, it’s even worse than we thought:

A review of records has found that Republican Nathan Deal did not disclose two active loans on which he and his business partner owe a combined $2.85 million.

The loans from two banks were made to Deal and Kenneth Cronan in 2009. They do not appear on the financial disclosure Deal filed with the state Ethics Commission when he announced he was running for governor.

Deal on Thursday called it an “oversight” and said he planned to amend his financial disclosure with the state. He said the debts were business loans for his Gainesville Auto Salvage business. Real estate records list only Deal and Cronan as the guarantors.

One $350,000 loan is from Verity Bank in Winder, Ga. The other is a $2.5 million from Branch Banking and Trust Co. in Gainesville, Ga.

How does Deal call his refusal to disclose $2.8 million dollars in loans an “oversight”? And this is on top of the previous $2 million loan that is due in February?

Deal. Unreal.
