Mitt Romney, has been deliberately dilatory with releasing reports concerning his vast wealth of firing people money. For whatever reason, the Republican Presidential Candidate has decided that there’s no better time to capture people’s attention than on a Friday evening in the early summer as it appears Willard has finally released his much ballyhooed financial reports.
According to the reports, his net worth is between $190 million and $250 million. His capital gains income was at least $4.5 million. He showed some income from speeches and writing. The unemployed multimillionaire made a vast chunk of his wealth by selling a slew of stocks in a wide range of companies — including Procter & Gamble, Aflac, American Express, Apple, Exxon Mobil, Google and JPMorgan Chase — all of which were managed by Goldman Sachs and Thornburg Investment Management. So it looks like corporations are some people’s best friend.
He also reported a fortune in several off-shore accounts. He listed no liabilities.
It seems all of Romney’s assets are tucked away in blind trusts and he does not make decisions about what is bought or sold according to the report. He has not released his 2011 tax returns.
