Kerry Kennedy, the daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy who leads a controversial jail bailout in New York City, raked in $352,298 in 2016 as head of a foundation named for her slain father, the New York Post reported.
Kennedy's compensation as president of the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights foundation included a $70,000 "bonus," the Post reported, citing tax filings for the non-profit.
According to the tax filings, Kennedy had a base salary just over $200,000 between 2009 and 2011, plus a $25,000 bonus earned in 2010, the Post reported. By 2012, her salary rose to $236,768 and two years later it rose to $280,774 plus a $50,000 bonus.
The most recent $70,000 bonus came as the non-profit saw its contributions fall nearly $2.5 million — from $12,978,316 in 2015 to $10,496,055 in 2016, the tax filings show, the Post reported.
The Washington-based foundation last month earmarked $5 million for an initiative to bail out all women and 16-and 17-year-olds from city jails no matter what crime they have committed, the Post reported.
Kennedy, the former wife of New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, was found not guilty in 2014 of driving under the influence of drugs; she argued she had mistakenly taken the sleeping pill Ambien and did not remember crashing into a tractor trailer.
