Bloomberg: Commerce secretary’s fortune revalued after Forbes report
The Bloomberg Billionaires Index lowered its net worth calculation for U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross to $860 million from $3 billion after determining that figures he provided couldn’t be independently verified.
“You really don’t get a real picture of what the finances are like,” said Larry Noble, a senior director at the Campaign Legal Center, a non-partisan election-law center in Washington. “You can’t figure out the top end. There’s a real public interest in knowing the financial interest that these people have.”
