Ann Romney tops annual list of highest-paid politicians
In 2016 it looked like the politician’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (April 25) that Romney is the highest-paid politician in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between March 2018 and March 2019, a nearly $60 million lead over her 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-business woman has an estimated net worth of $275 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Romney Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Detroit Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderomney - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Ann) and a fashion line called “Ann Romney Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Ann fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
