I stand corrected

DUer Celerity pointed out to me that Andrew Yang is not a billionaire. So I checked, and apparently it's not jus me because Forbes published an article entitled "Andrew Yang is Not Nearly As Rich As You'd Think."

https://www.forbes.com/sites/chasewithorn/2019/11/19/andrew-yang-is-not-nearly-as-rich-as-youd-think/

So I retract my statement, regret my error, and apologize profoundly.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Tom Steyer

2. I think the early media reports on him left that impression, so

 

itís not unusual that many folks would assume the same.

4. I think that when he first announced he was touted as a billionaire by the press. They backed off..

 

...on that since, so not all your fault.

5. This is not your fault.

 

When I first heard of him, people kept referring to him as a "Tech Billionaire". Until today, I have never seen anyone correct that. I knew what Bloomberg was worth because twice I wrote about him and wanted to get the number right. Since Yang's polling never seemed high enough to reach nomination status, I never bothered to look up how much he was worth. I am sure that many, many people thought he was a billionaire. Cut yourself some slack.

6. You aren't the only one. I would even say that most people think he is super wealthy.
