DescriptionFormer U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona earned more than $900,000 over the past year from an array of organizations ranging from a health resort and medical schools to Coca-Cola and the company that makes Taser guns.

Disclosure documents submitted by Carmona, the Democratic recruit for Arizona’s open Senate seat, paint a picture of a man with a diverse set of skills and interests who juggles 20 different positions while crisscrossing the country to share his knowledge with others — often for a hefty fee.

An analysis by The Hill of Carmona’s personal financial disclosure, which his campaign submitted to Senate officials last week, reveals that Carmona has a net worth of upwards of $2.3 million. Close to 700 assets — some held jointly with his wife — were reported, including stocks, life insurance policies and an interest in an Oklahoma oil well.

A high school dropout and child of indigent emigrants from Puerto Rico, Carmona served in the U.S. Army and became a decorated Vietnam veteran before returning home and attending medical school. Carmona trained as a trauma surgeon, became a deputy sheriff and SWAT team leader, and was eventually named surgeon general under President George W. Bush.
