Romney Fundraiser Leder's Next Stop: A Wharton Classroom

I have been told that Marc Leder, the host of the infamous Romney 47% fundraiser, is expected to lecture at  the Wharton School this October. I am just hoping that he is not planning to teach how to throw amazing sex parties, no taxes on fund management fees that should be taxed as ordinary income, or sticking the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation with your pension obligations.

The Sixers part owner might catch a preseason game during his Philadelphia visit.

Besides his lifetime gifts of $1, 845,100 to the University of Pennsylvania, the founder of Sun Capital lectures frequently at Wharton. In addition, he serves on the board of the Huntsman Program for International Studies and Business, which is named for the father of former presidential candidate Jon Huntsman.

With annual tuition now over $39,000, the Leder Family Endowed Scholarships helps defray the cost of an University of Pennsylvania education, preferable for incoming Wharton students. He provides financial support to undergraduates enrolled in the Huntsman program for summer immersion language program. In addition, he has made a sizable donation to the Penn Center for Orphan Disease Research.

Thanks to Ronald Ozio, director of media relations for the University of Pennsylvania, for confirming Leder's donations to the University. 

I will have more on Leder's dealing with the New York Attorney General and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation after Yom Kippur. It did not seem right to discuss them on Atonement day.
