WASHINGTON (CNN) - Executive Branch financial disclosure forms released today show White House Senior Adviser David Plouffe walked away from a $1.5 million salary as a consultant at Plouffe Strategies when he joined the Obama administration. He also said goodbye to a $108,000 salary from AKPD Message and Media, and speaking fees ranging from $8k to $100k a pop! Not bad for a young man who dropped out of college to pursue a career in politics (He received his undergraduate degree in 2010).
The records also show that White House Chief of Staff William Daley raked in over $13 million in salary and stock from JP Morgan. It makes the $1.7 million he received from Abbott Labs and Boeing almost not worth mentioning.
