When An Elected Official's Net Wealth Declines...

It is at least a hint that he is not using his position to get rich.  My Congreeman for several years had the lowest net wealth of any member of the House at the end of his last term.  He is now Idaho Attorney-General.

Gov. DeSantis has a net wealth a bit above $300,000, down for the third year in a row, so he is not hurting but clearly has more in common with us ordinary people than Trump.  Watch the media focus on him as a "rich" person.  Especially from media figures with net wealth much above him.

  1. I am far more interested in how AOC went from being an unemployed bartender with negative net worth to a net worth in excess of $30-million in three years.
