The Palmetto State Republican and Michael, her husband of 17 years, reported joint earnings of $284,226 in 2012. Their charitable giving came to just under 46 percent of their total income.

That includes $109,481 in profits from the sale of her 2012 memoir, "Can't Is Not an Option: My American Story."
