Ehrlich made $821K in private sector last year
Republican former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich and his wife took home $821,641 last year, nearly all of it from the Baltimore office of Womble Carlyle, where he earned $734,663.
Ehrlich made five years of tax returns available for reporters to review for three hours Friday afternoon. The campaign would not release copies. Gov. Martin O’Malley’s campaign will allow reporters to review his returns Saturday morning.
“If it were up to Bob Ehrlich he would have never been in the private sector,” said Henry Fawell, an Ehrlich campaign spokesman. “He looks forward to joining public service again next year.”
Ehrlich and his wife Kendel filed join returns. She earned roughly $45,686 from her board membership on BankAnnapolis, campaign officials said.
The couple took in about $31,230, mostly from their WBAL radio show, campaign spokesman said.
The Ehrlichs also earned a sizable income in earlier years, making $884,502 in 2008 and $784,372 in 2007.
