Seriously? Roll Call has used information from 2009 financial disclosure forms to assemble this nifty table of the minimum value of assets and liabilities for all 435 Members of Congress.
Assets include stocks, bank accounts, rental properties and other income-producing holdings; liabilities are most frequently mortgages and other bank loans. Assets and liabilites are reported in broad ranges; this table uses the minimum of all reported ranges and subtracts liabilities from assets to produce a minimum net worth.
The Alabama delegation, from wealthiest to poorest:
- Parker Griffith (D, AL-05)
- Bobby Bright (D, AL-02)
- Robert Aderholt (R, AL-04)
- Mike Rogers (R, AL-03)
- Jo Bonner (R, AL-01)
- Spencer Bachus (R, AL-06)
- Artur Davis (D, AL-07)
For perspective, the gap in minimum net worth between Bachus and Davis is more than half a million dollars. Davis is one of 34 members reporting a minimum net worth of zero or less.
