9. Billy Graham – $25 Million
At 97-years-old, Billy Graham is certainly the oldest person on this list. He’s befriended political figures throughout modern history including presidents Dwight Eisenhower, Lyndon B. Johnson, and Richard Nixon- but his relationship with Nixon got him caught up in controversy when the former president’s incendiary tapes were released.
Graham and Nixon were heard discussing Jewish people controlling the American media with a “stranglehold.” His reputation took a blow, but Graham has been such a staple in international Christian culture that he was forgiven and his ministries continued to thrive and some appreciated that, even as a prominent figure in the religious community, he never shied away from stepping into the political arena.
