Mittens takes a lot of crap for his many houses, but he doesn’t quite own the 15 that Newt Gingrich thinks he does.
Politifact reports that Romney currently owns three houses.
ABC reported that he owned five houses in 2008.
Know who’s well on his way to owning 15 houses though? Our very own average Joe junior Senator, Scott Brown. His 2010 Senate Personal Financial Disclosure, the most recent available, lists three condos owned for investment purposes, plus his law office building.
His 2008 Massachusetts Statement of Financial Interests, the last one for which the data isn’t blacked out, also lists his residence in Wrentham, his Aruba timeshare, and his NH vacation house. Since once’s a timeshare, we’ll call that 2 houses.
The DC Recorder of Deeds reveals that he has another house there (signup required).
That’s at least 6 houses Scott Brown owns, 8 properties in total. So next time you’re making fun of Romney for being an out of touch elitist, don’t leave out his homeboy Scott Brown.
