    LOL, his “committee.” You mean Ron Nielson?

    Will Gary Johnson, once again, ignore all questions about where the campaign cash went at this latest squeezing of the udders?

  2. Zapper

    Attn Gary Johnson:

    Your financial secrecy is now becoming an embarrassment to the LP and yourself.

    It’s time to come clean and open your campaign books – that is, those that are hidden by the cloak of the Nielson trick.

    We suspect that this is just a case of massive looting by your campaign manager himself. So, let’s see if your campaign really eneded in debt or if its just a hoped-for huge payday intended for your campaign manager.

  3. Jango

    The real question: was Gary Johnson actually PAID to be a candidate? That is, did Ron Nielson “hire” Gary Johnson to be an advisor on the Gary Johnson campaign?

    Everyone says Gary is “rich” so why would he need the small time funds of a third party candidate?

    According to a FOX Business report from last year on presidential candidate net worths, Gary has a net worth of between $3-$10 million. That’s a big gap. If it’s the low end of that – $3 million – and 1/2 of that worth is tied-up in his home, a $300,000 consulting “fee” to “advise” himself – since he has no other job or obvious source of income – would be nothing he’d likely scoff at.

  4. Jango

    @7 – half of $3 million is $1.5 million

    Also, Johnson’s estate in Taos is, according to Outside, 7500 square feet on 23 acres sitting against waterfront property (the Hondo River) and he had it custom built to his specifications. [http://www.outsideonline.com/outdoor-adventure/politics/Failure-to-Launch.html?page=all]

  5. Jango

    So what we have here is:

    (1) 60 year old man who has not held a job in 10 years and has no obvious or claimed source of income,
    (2) based on estate value, may have as little as $1.5 million in liquidity plus investments to sustain him for the next 30 years,
    (3) has to pay property taxes and upkeep on a 7500 square foot home – regularly takes month-long holidays to exotic, international destinations
    (4) has extremely sketchy looking campaign finances and has refused to answer questions about them when asked

    seems legit – I’d feel safe writing this guy a $100 check … or not! :)

    @12 Let me suggest that your analysis points at net worth being toward the high end of that range.

    By the way, when I had to do one of these, which I admit was six years ago so the rules may have changed, the value of your house was specifically excluded from your asset list. Please check if that has changed, because if not it leads to you having underestimated his net worth considerably.

  7. Jango

    ‘K, isn’t rocket science. It’s not even algebra. It’s basic arithmetic.

    Source: net worth as little as $3 million –
    “Johnson’s biggest asset is his home in Taos, N.M.”
    http://www.foxbusiness.com/industries/2011/10/04/net-worth-gop-presidential-candidates/

    Source: Johnson’s home is worth $1.32 million – http://lookup.taoscounty.org/assessor.aspx?source=assessor&page=optOwnerName&searchterm=Johnson%2c+Gary&select=1073&selectyr=1073

    That means, like I said, Johnson may have as little as $1.5 million he’s using to fund a fairly extravagant lifestyle.

    Johnson NEEDS this job of being a professional candidate/advocate. I’m just curious how much NSON is paying him.

  8. George Phillies

    @13 The Fox article appears to be referencing the FEC-filing document. The FEC-filing document — I have done several — excludes your house as an asset. Thus, Johnson’s assets are a tad bit larger than you are suggesting. You might turn it around, namely estimate expenses like those trips, and multiply by as a guess 20 to infer assets.

    Having said that, I do not disagree with your sentiments, but this is an area where precision is desirable.

    I read that Gary Johnson is worth $10 million.

    And fyi, Virgil Goode is worth $4 million.

    I read that Gary Johnson is worth $10 million.

    Where, and by what methodology did they get this number? His disclosure says between 3 and 10 million; you may just remember seeing the upper end of that range, or they may have assumed it.

  11. Andy

    I imagine that Gary Johnson gets a pension from having been Governor of New Mexico. Anyone know how much that is?

  12. paulie

    Good question. Let’s start with – where is the FEC disclosure that lists the 3-10 million range? I did not find it at FEC just now. All that was popping up was Johnson 2012 committee info, not his personal disclosure. I probably looked in the wrong place.

    It was off some site that reports on campaign finance.

    FYI, Gary Johnson is apparently an investor in several hotels/motels, and I think some office buildings as well. He co-owns properties in Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona (I’m pretty sure Arizona is one of them).

    Doesn’t seem to be working right in this browser. I’ll try a different one.”

    The link works for me.
