(Newser) – John McCain reported $259,000 in 2007 taxable income and $215,304 in 2006, the AP reports. The figures—modest in comparison to the Obama and Clinton tax returns—don’t include the income of his wife, Cindy, whose wealth has been estimated at $100 million. The presumptive Republican nominee gave $105,000 to charity last year and donated $177,000 in royalties from his books.
