The ink is barely dry on Al Gore’s 100 million dollar personal profit on the sale of worthless Current TV to Al Jazeera, when the former Veep turned climate huckster has made another killing, this time on Apple stock. According to Apple Insider, Gore, a board member since 2003, bought 59 thousand shares of Apple yesterday at the board member’s price of $7.475, a total purchase price of $441,000. Meanwhile, to the rest of us outsiders, Apple was selling at $502.68 a share or a cool $29,658,120 for Gore’s haul.
Who says the Apple stock doesn’t fall far from the tree? And by the way, in case you missed it, Al Gore is now richer than Mitt Romney.
