A Washington Post investigation of the wealth of members of Congress highlights Sen. Jim Risch as the
14th wealthiest member of Congress, while his GOP colleague, Rep. Raul Labrador, is 19th poorest. Such rankings aren't new and are based on the annual financial disclosure forms filed by members of Congress, which are tracked annual by the Center for Responsive Politics, which includes a database of finance reports for members of Congress.

The Post concludes that wealthy lawmakers mostly weathered the recession without significant declines in their wealth/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.
