Of course we know that all 5013c's are legitimate and all their money goes back into the organization and not into the pockets of the board members. Thank goodness for the one American example of truth and honesty, the 5013c. As for Mr. Gore's wealth being tied to his political agenda, I would say all but his oil holdings, which is hypocritical given Mr. Gore's political stance on oil. The article you refrenced even said as much.
Most of the rest had been recently inherited, including an undisclosed number of shares of Occidental Petroleum Corp. left to him by his late father, Senator Albert Gore Sr., and valued at between $500,000 and $1 million, according to disclosure forms"
And his investment group sold Current TV to a company funded in part by oil-rich Qatar.
In all fairness, an as bad as I hate to defend it.
The article I referenced is a Right Wing leaning organization and to say, "even said as much" , is an incorrect statement.
The way it was written it is easy to imagine that was the intention of the author to insinuate it, and not say it.
You hear what you want to hear, you heard just what he/she wanted you to hear.
