Pence files income disclosure

Gov. Mike Pence made about $173,000 last year. He disclosed that Thursday when he filed his personal financial disclosure with the Federal Election Commission, as required by law.

Pence’s annual salary as governor is about $111,000.

Pence’s wife listed income as less than $1,000 from a business she owns called “That’s My Towel Charm, Inc.”. The Pence’s also listed their bank account as having less than $15,000, and two 529 education savings plans as having less than $15,000 a piece.

“Our family has been honored to serve our state and nation. Like many American families, we have been fortunate and blessed to raise three wonderful children and put them through college while doing work that we love,” said Pence in a statement after the release.

Marc Lotter, Press Secretary to Governor Pence, included the additional statement:

“As Americans can clearly see, the Pence family has not enriched themselves from their public service, which stands in stark contrast to Bill and Hillary Clinton who traded their public service for tens of millions of dollars in paid speeches, pay-to-play activities, and schemes involving their foundation that led to calls by the FBI for an investigation.”

Trump has yet to release his income tax returns, but said by way of his campaign that Pence will do so in the near future.
