Makes sense to me. When I look at the size of Michael Bloomberg’s fortune (over $60 billion, by all accounts), I have to ask how much “dirt” went into amassing so great an amount. If it all happened without a single lapse in ethics or honesty, and entirely within the law, I’ll go out and buy a hat so that I can eat it!
(Of course, the same applies to most large fortunes, irrespective of the political affiliations and/or ambitions of their owners. I daresay a certain amount of skullduggery was involved in all of them.)
