Clintons Report $109.2 Million in Income Over 7 Years

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and former President Clinton report nearly $109.2 million in income for seven years in newly released tax data.

The Democratic presidential candidate and her husband paid $33.8 million in taxes from 2000 through 2007. They listed $10.25 million in charitable contributions during that period.

Clinton has been under pressure to release her tax returns, especially from rival Barack Obama, who posted his 2000 to 2006 returns on his campaign Web site last week. Neither Obama nor Republican Sen. John McCain have made their 2007 tax returns public, though both say they will this month.

Gilbert note: The sad part of this story is that every candidate releases this data. There is nothing wrong with being a successful capitalist and selling your books and making public appearances once you leave office.

As I compare their revenue Vs donations my only question is how much of the $10.25 million listed as charities were paid to their church in the form of tithes and offerings.

Juice readers. Now that we know this data what impact will it have on your assessment of Hillary’s campaign effort?

How important is it to know this financial data anyway?

Is it possible that some of their funds are a result of president Bill Clinton’s lobbying efforts on behalf of any other nations which may impact our position in current or future transactions such as “free trade” agreements and tariffs?
