Edwards reveals income for campaign
As a requirement for running for Congress in the 6th District, former Gov. Edwin Edwards has filed his financial disclosure statement with the U.S. House showing his income in 2013 totaling $242,787.
Within two years of being released from federal prison, the statement shows Edwards was earning money from his biography, a television show, speaking engagements, energy royalties and retirement benefits.
He did not list any stocks, interest earned from savings accounts or liabilities owed to creditors.
Edwards’ most substantial source of income was the government, with $95,939 earned last year from congressional and state retirement systems and Social Security.
He was also paid $79,500 by Left Field Productions for his canceled A&E reality series, “The Governor’s Wife,” and earned another $46,600 through speaking engagements. His biography, “Edwin Edwards: Governor of Louisiana,” brought in $17,792 in 2013.
The smallest revenue stream for Edwards came from royalties: $2,787 from Nelson Energy and $169 from Henry Products.
He likewise reported his income for 2014, up until April 20, which amounted to $51,074.
