“I’m not,” Moore insisted. “I am devoting my life to those who have less and who have been crapped upon by the system.”
Well Moore may dress like a slob and claim to speak for working stiffs, but his luxurious home proves Moore is a lot closer to the 1 percent than the other 99.
Tax records show the liberal documentary filmmaker owns an eye-popping lakefront property in Michigan in one of the country’s most exclusive neighborhoods -- in addition to his luxury Park Avenue pad in Manhattan.
Conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart exposed the details of Moore’s spacious mansion on Michigan’s Torch Lake, noting that the outspoken Occupy Wall Street supporter’s neighbors include Hollywood bigs Bruce Willis, Tim Allen and Madonna.
The blog MichiganView reported the liberal icon’s neighbors also include millionaires such ex-Chrysler Chairman Bob Eaton and boat mogul John Winn -- exactly the types of fat cats the rotund agitator regularly skewers in his work.
Houses in the waterfront enclave, described by locals as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, go for as much as $3 million -- not extravagant by metropolitan New York standards but at the top of the heap in the Wolverine State.
Local real-estate agents told MichiganView that Moore’s home was worth about $2 million -- putting it in the top 1 percent in the state of Michigan.
