Sarah Palin 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 Monday (May 20) that Palin is the highest-paid politician in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between April 2018 and April 2019, a nearly $20 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 has an estimated net worth of $145 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 Palin Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Sandpoint Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderpalin - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Sarah) and a fashion line called “Sarah Palin Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Sarah fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
