FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Republican gubernatorial candidate David Williams is being accused of not reporting gambling activity on a 2003 financial disclosure form.

That accusation was the basis of a complaint filed Monday with the Legislative Ethics Commission by Democratic Party Chairman Dan Logsdon.

As president of the Kentucky state Senate, Williams is required to periodically file documents listing personal financial information. Logsdon charges that Williams made no mention of his gambling income received in 2002. The gambling income had been included on personal tax returns that were part of an old divorce file.

In the complaint, Logsdon charged that Williams intentionally misled the public by failing to report the gambling income.

Williams spokesman Scott Jennings didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
