Did you know?
Former Vice President Al Gore got woah loaded after the presidency was stolen from him in 2000. Basically, I want to grow up to be just like Al Gore: disgustingly wealthy with all kinds of free Apple products.
If any friendly Republicans would like to help us (okay, just Jake, forget Rick– he’s on his own) get sickeningly rich by talking about the melting polar icecaps, well, that’d be just fine.
Email me here. Get rich quick schemes welcome. So are anonymous cash donations and free Apple products. (Hint: MacBook Pro with 4 gigs of ram, 15″ glossy, please.)
Gore Invests $35 Million for Hedge Funds With EBay Billionaire
By Miles Weiss
March 6 (Bloomberg) — Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore left the White House seven years ago with less than $2 million in assets, including a Virginia home and the family farm in Tennessee. Now he’s making enough to put $35 million in hedge funds and other private partnerships.
Gore invested the money with Capricorn Investment Group LLC, a Palo Alto, California, firm that selects the private funds for clients and invests in makers of environmentally friendly products, according to a Feb. 1 securities filing. Capricorn was founded by billionaire Jeffrey Skoll, former president of EBay Inc. and an executive producer of Gore’s Oscar-winning documentary film on global warming.
