The candidate made more in a year than most Americans earn in a lifetime and used a shell company to manage money and cut down on risk. It wasn't disclosed until investigative reporters dug up the paper trail. 

In 2012, the candidate was Mitt Romney and the company was Bermuda-based Sankaty High Yield Asset Investors Ltd. This time around, it's Hillary Clinton and Delaware-based WJC, LLC.
