Responding to weeks of criticism from Sen. Barack Obama's camp, presidential hopeful Senator Hilary Rodham Clinton has released her tax filings (jointly filed with husband, former President Bill Clinton) from 2000-2006, and provided an estimate of the 2007 filings, which they have not yet completed.
According to a statement released by Clinton Campaign Spokesman Jay Carson: "The Clintons have now made public thirty years of tax returns, a record matched by few people in public service. None of Hillary Clinton's presidential opponents have revealed anything close to this amount of personal financial information."
During this eight-year span, the pair's cumulative gross income was $109,175,175. The top earning category by far for the couple was from former President Clinton's speeches, which raked in almost $52 million. By comparison, his presidential pension brought in $1.2 million. Also noteworthy was the Clintons' charitable contribution of more than $10 million -- or, according to the site, 9.5% of their adjusted gross income.
Further details are available at Senator Clinton's Web site.
