Jimmy Carter tops annual list of highest-paid politicians

In 2015 it looked like the politician’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (September 19) that Carter is the highest-paid politician in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between August 2016 and August 2017, a nearly $40 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The American politician has an estimated net worth of $215 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Carter Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Plains Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondercarter - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Jimmy) and a fashion line called “Jimmy Carter Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Jimmy fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
