Millionaire Carly Fiorina still refusing to pay employees from her failed 2010 Senate campaign
Hey look! Another rich person refusing to pay people who labored for them.
The campaign of Carly Fiorina, the millionaire former CEO who spearheads a national Republican senatorial fundraising campaign, owes nearly $500,000 to people who worked on her failed 2010 California Senate run.
Fiorina, who received a $21 million severance package when she was fired as Hewlett-Packard's CEO in 2005, has a combined net worth with her husband Frank of between $30 million and $120 million, according to financial disclosure statements filed in connection with her Senate run. She owns residences in Sausalito and Washington. Last month, she became a regular contributor on financial issues to the cable network CNBC.
But after contributing $5 million to her Senate campaign, the first-time candidate has not tapped her wealth to take care of unfinished political business in California.
Her campaign owes $492,606 to more than two dozen individuals and businesses, many of them California's top political and financial consultants, according to a Federal Election Commission document covering the most recent filing period, which ended March 31.
