David Rivera looks to clear up questions on the eve of becoming a congressman

AP reports that David Rivera is releasing new documents aimed at clearing up questions about his sources of income.

The Miami Republican filed amendment state ethics forms Monday and released his federal financial disclosure form for 2010. Rivera takes the oath of office Wednesday.

Much of the scrutiny concerns a contract Rivera signed to run a multimillion-dollar 2008 campaign to expand slot machines. Rivera insisted Monday he never received any income from the $500,000 contract, which was arranged through a firm called Millenium Marketing Strategies that was co-managed by his mother.

Rivera's new documents show he repaid a loan from Millenium for between $100,001 and $250,000.
