JACKSON, MS (WDAM) - Roll Call, a popular political website, has released a "Wealthiest members of Congress" report, and four of Mississippi's highest ranking officials made the list.
- Long time Senator Thad Cochran enters the list at 145 with a net worth of $1.59 million dollars.
- Steven Palazzo is lower on the list at 212 with a net worth of $800,000.
- Bennie Thompson follows Palazzo at 308 with a net worth of $300,000 dollars.
- Gregg Harper is 388 with a net worth of $40,000
Most people think that $1.59 million is a lot of money, but it doesn't come close to what Representative Darrell Issa is worth.
The California based member of Congress retains a net worth of $357.25 million, taking over the number one spot.
