Romney Donated Inheritance

August 16, 2012

Did you know that Mitt Romney gave away his inheritance?

Even the New York Times, trying to give him no quarter, admits it.  The Times and Politifact try to say that if Romney’s parents helped him pay for college or his first house (more than twenty years before his father died), that somehow makes his statement only partially true, but it clearly doesn’t.  Politifact admits that Romney made his fortune himself, by doing an excellent job at Bain Capital.

Some Web site I’ve never heard of and the liberal Mother Jones make much of an interview in which Mitt Romney apparently explained, “What I got from my parents when they passed away I gave away to charity and to my kids.”  Neither the New York Times nor Politifact thought this argument was worth bringing up.  In any case, I suppose it is still giving it away, even if it’s partly given to one’s children.

A blogger also discusses Romney’s other charitable giving.
