...good point on the LDS power brokers; Romney, Huntsman, etc. The Church also enjoys having them in their pocket for whatever political or financial lobbying or voting that needs be. Reid, Hatch, Romney, Huntsman; Masters of LDS tradecraft.

The facts, as we know them, are that these people are well above average in terms of home value. Now in the case of several of them, some deceased, they were essentially life long church employees (Hinckley, Maxwell, Monson, Packer, etc.). Many have worked for extended periods in positions in which the business was owned by the LDS church...Holland and Oaks as BYU president, Bednar as a BYU Ida

QUOTE They fly first class, if not in the Huntsman jet UNQUOTE They do fly first class, but it isn't because they purchase first class tickets. It is because they have more upgrade miles than they can ever spend, airlines want to avoid the impact of their celebrity on flights so want them in first class, and airlines upgrade them to honor the church as the source of a healthy portion of airli

TSM rides around in an armored Audi A8, if I am not mistaken. They fly first class, if not in the Huntsman jet. I know where many of them shop for suits, and I know the cost.

Technically speaking Thomas S. Monson is wealthier than anyone listed. He is 100x wealthier than Huntsman.
