    Why did it take so long for you guys to report this? I can understand if you’re a private business person and have earned the money properly…but how, as a public official could you have earned millions, while in office??? Something is very crooked, and has been going on for decades. We have the wrong people in office, Pelosi and feinstein being the worst of them.

    Now we know why none of these politicians want to be taken off the public feeding trough. Where elso can you get the finest medical coverage in the world for life at no cost to you AND your family with no deductible and any physician or service of your choice. Just taking that savings alone you could amass quite a healthy nest egg but don’t stop there, having the ability to commute to work from California on a private jet at no cost to you is a nice perc. When was the last time your employer paid for your commuting expenses to get to work? The list goes on, and this is what is representing us in Washington!!!! Representing their own best interests first, we are dead last on representation wagon, remember their motto in Washington, “we know what is best for you, shut up and sign the check!”
