The 10 richest and poorest members of Congress

Who are some of the wealthiest and least wealthy members of the nation’s most powerful lawmaking body? That can be a tricky question to answer, according to Roll Call, which has been scanning over congressional financial disclosure statements since 1990. That’s because members of Congress are only required to report assets and liabilities in a broad range of minimums — as low as $1 to$1,000 and as high as $50 million or more.
