According to Cosmopolitan, before she became Trump’s campaign manager and then his top adviser, Conway 49, was “a veteran political operative, who’s spent the last three decades advising Republicans on how to appeal to female voters.”

CNN reported that Kellyanne “founded the polling company/WomanTrend in 1995, and serves as the company’s president. The firms lists as clients a who’s who of the conservative and tea party world, including” Vice President Mike Pence. Her claim to fame was as a conservative gender expert.

Vanity Fair reported that Conway’s “small D.C. polling firm, the Polling Company, has taken in close to $1.9 million from political campaign committees” during the presidential campaign. Her firm also made $65,000 helping Trump’s primary opponent, Ben Carson, Vanity Fair reported.

According to Politico, Conway’s firm also “began working for a trio of PACs supporting Cruz, one of which was funded by $13.5 million donated by Bob Mercer, according to FEC records.” Mercer is described by Politico as a “hedge fund tycoon.”

Kellyanne Conway is not the only breadwinner in the Conway family. Her husband, George, has built a successful career as a lawyer. He’s so established in conservative legal circles that he’s being considered for solicitor general.

Conway’s New York law firm bio says he “has been a partner in the Litigation Department of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz since January 1994. He joined the firm in September 1988.”

AmericanPolitics claimed Conway’s income from the law firm where he works in New York is at least $1 million a year. The Observer called Conway a “million-dollar-a-year partner.”

The law firm describes his litigation experience as including “a variety of high-profile matters spanning many areas of law in federal and state courts throughout the country. He has extensive experience in securities litigation, mergers and acquisitions litigation, contract litigation, antitrust litigation, and other litigation, both at the trial and appellate levels.”

One of those high-profile suits involved representing tobacco company Philip Morris. “Mr. Conway played a substantial role in prosecuting one of the most prominent defamation cases in recent memory (Philip Morris v. American Broadcasting Cos.),” said the law firm.

Kellyanne has been open about the struggles her mother faced when she was growing up. Kellyanne was not born to wealth.

“My father left when I was very young. I didn’t meet him until I was 12 or 13. We had no alimony, no child support,” Kellyanne told The Washington Post.

But she told the newspaper that she learned to be self sufficient at an early age, saying, “I didn’t get married until I was 34, and I had been very independent, started my own business, paid off my student loans” and added “I grew up around Atlantic City. My mother worked there for 21 years, and that was our sole source of support. She was left with no alimony, no child support whatsoever when I was 2 or 3.”

She should be every young girls role model. She seems so lovely and is a great example of a working mom. If she was a democrat they would hail her. Because she is not they try everyday to tear her down. Embarrassing actions by female activists. I was at a 2003 screening of Vincent Gallo film The Brown Bunny. I remember the festival art crowd booing screaming and laughing throughout the entire film. Vincent Gallo is a republican and directed a film he got blown in. I am 100% certain if the same film showed and was credited as a film by his left wing female co star Chloe Sevigny the film would have been hailed as a master piece. Which it is.
