    i find it impossible to fathom an 80 million dollar "clerical error"...it's bull****.

    it won't matter much, for all her 1% credentials, her role as a bundler for campaign financing, her support for subprime lending, MBS's, etc... she's a democratic/leftie darling now.

    Can you think of any reason she would intentionally underreport her income? She is a Pritzker, for crying out loud.

    Someone that wealthy has a lot of assets in a lot of locations, and a lot of income from a lot of sources.

    I don't know how it happened, but it really could be as simple as a spreadsheet error. Someone didn't include the "consulting income" line into the calculation.

    i'm sure it was just a simple oversight... folks lose track of 80 million dollars of personal income all the time.

    Right Wing radicals froth
    who? unite here?

    follow the froth:

    Labor unrest at Hyatt Hotels Corp. escalated Monday as Unite Here called for a global boycott of the Chicago-based hotel chain and the company took out a full-page Washington Post ad blasting the union campaign and defending its workplace practices.

    The union held a press conference in Washington D.C. announcing the boycott with leaders from the AFL-CIO, NFL Players Association, the National Organization of Women, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, among others, labeling the company “the worst hotel employer in America.”

    Unite Here has been engaged in a long battle with the company protesting the outsourcing of jobs and working conditions. It represents, housekeepers, bell staff, restaurant workers and others.

    “The launch of the global boycott marks the largest escalation to date in an ongoing campaign for basic worker rights,” Unite Here said in a release Monday.

    “Hyatt has abused housekeepers and other hotel workers, replacing longtime employees with minimum wage temporary workers and imposing dangerous workloads on those who remain.”

    Unite Here President John Wilhelm said in a statement “it is unacceptable in 2012 that women endure debilitating injuries as a result of the work they do cleaning rooms.”

    In announcing the boycott, Unite Here also said it will engage in a week of demonstrations at Hyatt Hotels in 20 cities, including Chicago, Los Angeles, Honolulu, San Francisco and Boston.

    Same way I'd lose track of $80 when I click the wrong box on my own spreadsheet.

    The error was caught and reported by Pritzker's own people. Absent any evidence of intentional wrongdoing, why should I do anything but give them the benefit of the doubt? You don't... hate and distrust all rich people simply for being rich... do you?

    Haven't you conservatives figured it out yet? It's ok cause she's a leftist. This only matters if she was a conservative. Don't believe me ask the IRS or the mainstream media!

    The disturbing thing is that campaign donors getting these important jobs for the nation. If I remember correctly when Obama was first elected in 2008 he gave a lot of donors ambassador jobs.
