Gwen Moore least wealthy of Wis. Congress members


U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore is the least wealthy member of Wisconsin's congressional delegation, according to her recently filed financial-disclosure form.

Her colleagues have listed assets that include mutual funds, retirement accounts, stock holdings and real estate. But the Milwaukee Democrat lists no actual assets.

She does list capital gains of up to $12,500 after cashing out five investment funds, and had other investment sales worth up to $75,000 but she lists no other current assets.

Moore also lists a liability of between $50,001 and $100,000 on the mortgage of her personal home.

All members of Congress have to release annual reports listing their assets, liabilities and stock transactions. However, they're only required to list the value of their assets in broad ranges, which makes specific comparisons difficult.
