Mitt Romney Declares Himself A Self-Employed Author In Campaign Filing Report [View all]
According to his June campaign filing, Romney and his wife, Ann, each donated $2,500 to the Romney for Victory Committee -- a joint fundraising account for the campaign and the Republican National Committee -- which was then transferred to Romney for President on May 15.
Ann, who has been outspoken about her stay-at-home-mom status, not surprisingly lists herself as a "homemaker."
Romney, however, lists himself as "self-employed." His occupation? "Author."
The former governor is now apparently digging deeper into his passion for writing, since on his 2011 income tax return, he listed a broader principal profession: "independent artists, writers, performers."
