He's a Chicago Democrat. What'd you expect?

In 2010 his net worth went from $111,000 to $442,00.
Earned and non-investment income was $153,841.

Can't seem to find where the rest came from.

Republican 2012 presidential candidate and multi-millionaire Mitt Romney told a group of unemployed Floridians at a campaign stop that he was also unemployed.

I should tell my story, Romney said, after listening to the group of unemployed Floridians.Im also unemployed".

If the news last summer that Mitt Romney had a $12 million expansion planned for his oceanfront property here helped portray him as a member of the top 1 percent, the new disclosure that the renovation includes elevators for his four-car garage is not likely to burnish his image as a man of the people.

Plans for the expansion, first reported by Politico and later obtained by The New York Times from a rival campaign, include a split-level, four-car garage with a car lift, an outdoor shower, and a 3,600-square-foot basement.

It's a shame Carey fails to respect your First Amendment rights...

And what's the mystery? Real Estate has gone way up in 15 years, so the Jacksons should come profit nicely.
