The Riches of Ann Coulter
How rich is Ann Coulter? As of early-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $8.5 million, earned through a successful career in writing as well as in law. She’s been involved in numerous political activities and controversies over the course of her career, but as she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Education
Ann’s father was an FBI agent and at a young age, her family moved to New Canaan, Connecticut where they would settle, and she grew up with two older brothers in a conservative household. She developed a strong interest in reading books at a young age, and adopted a strong conservative leaning, apparently increasing when she visited her older brother in New York City, which also led her to dream of pursuing a career as a writer.
She matriculated from New Canaan High School in 1980, and then enrolled at Cornell University, where she helped found “The Cornell Review”, an independent school newspaper. She graduated in 1984 as a cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in history, then continued her studies by enrolling at the University of Michigan Law School, and achieved her Juris Doctor in 1988. During her time there, she was an editor of the “Michigan Law Review”, and also trained at the National Journalism Center.
Career Beginnings and Writing
After law school, Coulter began working as a law clerk in Kansas City, and then tried her hand in private practice, specializing in corporate law. However, she left after a brief run to work for the US Senate Judiciary Committee in 1994, handling immigration and crime issues for Senator Spencer Abraham, and helping craft legislation for the deportation of aliens who were convicted of felonies. A few years later, she became a litigator with the Center for Individual Rights.
She then forayed into authoring books, writing a total of 12 so far, with many appearing on The New York Times Best Seller list, and selling a combined three million copies. Her first book was released in 1998 entitled “High Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Case Against Bill Clinton”, about her case for Clinton’s impeachment. Four years later, she published “Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right” which defended President George W. Bush. Her third book is entitled “Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism”, which dealt with a lot of issues during the Cold War.

Other popular books Ann wrote over the next few years include “Godless: The Church of Liberalism”, “If Democrats Had Any Brains, They’d Be Republicans”, and “Adios, America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole”. Prior to the popularity of her books, she had already been writing a syndicated column for the Universal Press Syndicate since the 1990s; her writings have since appeared in numerous websites, including her own. She also worked as a columnist for “George” magazine, and was a contributing editor for “National Review Online” (NRO).
Later on, publications would drop her column, with many stating that she at times displayed a lack of professionalism in her work. Other publications dropped her due to negative reader reactions, which often described her writing as mean-spirited, with comments coming even from those who also identified as conservatives. After she released “Godless: The Church of Liberalism”, many publications dropped her column, with some stating that she was creating the issue rather than writing about it.
