Marion Berry called down

Posted By on Thu, Jun 11, 2009 at 4:46 PM

Roby Brock picks up an item from D.C. press that indicates U.S. Rep. Marion Berry has underestimated the value of a Washington home on required financial disclosure forms by, oh, a half-million or so. He seems to be reporting cost of the Capitol Hill rowhouse (which he apparently rents out)  -- $369,000 -- rather than the required current market value of $947,000. Honest mistake, his staff says.

(Hard to figure why you'd intentionally underreport. With Zillow and Google mapping and all the rest of available web resources, it's pretty hard to hide the value of a home.)
