In this testimony, the legend of the hidden $280 million was born! Big money! Now, I’ve done some calculations and know that it’s possible that Jerry had that sum because I think he made over $400 million. But the most he ever told me he had in his house at one time was $20 million. So, what are we to believe? I guess that makes for a lot of interesting speculation, which I do in the book.
