At Least 42 Senators Are Millionaires
Mon Jun 16 2003 10:23:29 ET
At least 42 Senators -- including three Democratic presidential hopefuls -- are millionaires, according to 2002 financial disclosure forms released last week, and 10 percent of the chamber is worth upwards of $10 million each, ROLL CALL reported on Monday.
An analysis of the Senators' personal financial portfolios showed that nearly half of the nation's 100 Senators had a net worth of at least $1 million last year, marking a high tide for millionaires in the chamber.
In 2002, by comparison, exactly 40 Senators rang in with at least $1 million in net assets, steadily rising from 34 in 1996 and 28 in 1994. However, the imprecise nature of the disclosure forms, which were filed May 15 and released to the public on Friday, make it likely that the actual number of millionaires is significantly higher.
