From the government watchdog group CREW:
Betsy DeVos reported at least $225 million — and potentially well over $414 million — in outside income while working as Donald Trump’s education secretary, according to an analysis of DeVos’s financial disclosures by CREW. It is impossible to know the exact amount because DeVos’s income is reported in broad ranges, but we do know for a fact that she made nine figures during her four years in office.
At least $75 million of that massive sum came from Alticor, the parent company of Amway, her late father-in-law’s multilevel marketing behemoth. Amway has enjoyed decades of political power and connections, boosted by the family’s $100 million in political donations during the last 20 years to conservative candidates and groups like the Heritage Foundation and the American Enterprise Institute.
