Houston's Nine Members of Congress: Net Worth of Almost $400 Million
Welcome to Congress!
The Center for Responsive Politics has put out its list of the net worth of every member of Congress, and the Houston delegation are no slackers.
The nine representatives have a net worth estimated to be $392.4 million, which is a pretty impressive figure.
Actually, most of it comes from Rep. Michael McCaul, who CRP says is the second-richest member of Congress. His net worth is estimated to be $380.4 million.
The rest of the crew splits up the remaining $12 million, ranging from Al Green's $4.5 million to Ted Poe's $136,000.
The figures are only estimates, because the financial forms filed by federal officials only require broad ranges of income and assets. So, you know, McCaul could actually only be worth $258.6 million, which would be a shame.
The Houston list: 1. Michael McCaul, $380.4 million 2. Al Green, $4.5 million 3. Ron Paul, $3.6 million 4. Pete Olson, $1.4 million 5. Sheila Jackson Lee, $935,000 6. Kevin Brady, $551,000 7. Gene Green, $522,000 8. John Culberson, $337,000 9. Ted Poe, $136,000
